My perefered colleges : ISB, NSU, INSEAD-Singapore, IMD Etc.

Also If you could point me into the direction of the ways I could improve my profile by the time of application, it would be great. Thanks in advance for your time and advice.
Let's assume you get a balanced 700 on the GMAT. In that case, you would have chosen your schools well. You would have a competitive profile for NUS and IMD. ISB and INSEAD would be stretches, mainly because of the intense competition among Indian coming from IT.
