High GMAT score isn't enough to get into top B-schools, particularly for an Indian male with Engineering background.
THere are hundreds of applicants with a similar profile looking for an admit at these schools. Some thing exceptional is needed to set you apart from these tons of other applicants with a similar profile.
Your less than 3 years expereince is also a negative.
CMU, Goetza and Darden probably value high GMAT scores a lot more than many other schools.
I am a 25 yr old from India. I work in the (no points for guessing) IT sector as a Business Analyst.(3 yrs in Jun)
I have a GMAT score of 780 (5.0). A GPA of 7.3/10.0 @ a top engineering institute, which translates to 2.3 on the GMAT scale (while I think it deserves more).
In the 2010 season, I applied to Booth and Ross in R2. Booth handed me an interview invite. I was denied admission to both.
In the 2011 season, I applied to Columbia, Haas and Kellogg in R2. Ding w/o interview at Columbia. Waiting on Haas and Kellogg - pretty late now.
The real question I want to pose to you guys is : Am I aiming too high? If so, what can I do with my profile to more align with these schools?
