Hi Linda/Sonia:

here is my profile

Undergrad: Indian Institute Of Technology (Numero uno university in India)
Undergrad degree: Civil Engineering
CGPA: 7.15 out of 10 (I don't know which method to follow to convert it to the base 4 system and my institute clearly specifies that there is no raking within the class)
GMAT Score: 690 (49Q, 35V) - 600 in my first attempt, 570 in the second!!
Essays: 4 (got 5 in my previous two attempts)
Work Experience: 5years and 10 months (and by the time I join the univ, it will be 6 years and 6 months)
Industry: IT - software application development. I was primarily involved in the project management stream
Certifications: Certified Software Quality Analyst (CSQA), Certified Project Management Professional (PMP), LOMA (life insurance certification)

International work ex: 3 years in US and 3 years in India

Primary Interests: Strategy, Finance or General MBA

Target schools: LBS, INSEAD, ISB, Kellog, Boston university, Babson

Community Service: Please view the spreadsheet attachment

Could you please help me
(i) in evaluating whether I should apply to any other good schools? I am mainly focussing on a one year MBA and want to work in India after my MBA.
(ii) Do I stand a chance at my target schools?

Thanks in advance!
Regards
Vithal, PMP

I'm sorry, I didn't have the time to read your attachment. Based on your post, you are applying appropriately. You may also want to consider HEC .

You need to clarify your goal.

Yes, you have a chance at your target schools.

Good luck!
