Hi All,

I need some expert advice as I am planning to take my GMAT.

Here's my profile:

X - 75%
XII - 71%
B.Tech - 64.5 %
2.5 years Work Exp -- IT (Healthcare domain)

Not much extra currs. What should be my approach and what all schools can I target ? Worked on very good healthcare IT projects with an indian top IT firm and now with a US healthcare giant.. With a good GMAT score , can I project my profile in a way that wins me the race to top 10 b schools.

Please advice.

I was browsing around some of the older threads and found yours. I noticed that you haven't received a reply yet.

Were you able to take your GMAT yet? A lot of your school choices will depend on how well you do on your GMAT. Plenty of Indians apply to top b-schools each year and even with a 750, no one's going to be able to guarantee you to a spot to a top 10 school. What you can do, however, is to spread out your chips around the top schools, as long as your GMAT is 700+. If it's not, you will need to realistically adjust your expectations and go for a lower ranking school. And at that point, you'll need to judge whether it's worth your time and money to do that.
