Hello,

Thank you for your kind words; we’re glad to help!

While you are in the challenging Indian-in-IT over-represented group, your work experience seems distinctive (type of companies, achievement, global aspect, impact/achievement), and also very relevant to and a solid foundation for your goals.

With the expected GMAT score of 720, I’d consider your list of target schools sound. They would obviously be reasonable reaches, especially Columbia, but with great applications, I’d expect you to have a couple of admits at least.
