Here is my profile in brief.

1. GMAT 620 (Will be retaking the GMAt in Nov). TOEFL (113). Bachelor of Engineering in Computer Science (76%). 10th ICSE (83%).
2. Total 2 years of experience: I am currently working at Yahoo!. prior to Yahoo! I was working for a mobile apps startup.
3. Founder of No 1 student community portal in state (500,000 students)
4. Founder of TechSpark, official multi disciplinary technical forum in college.
5. Installed water purification system in government school in Bangalore.
6. Winner of Business plan competition (in college, Economic Times Power of Ideas and at Yahoo!)
7. Helped implement social media branding strategy for a large Hospital.
8. Highschool in London.
9. Played soccer for school and college teams.
10. Played host at talk shows with CEOs (called Coffee with CEO) while in college.
11. Attempted to bootstrap own startup but it failed and eventually had to be shutdown.

I hope to ship a product to every household on the planet one day! Hence, I am looking for MBA college which can not only refine my entrepreneurship, business, marketing skills but also have plenty tech enthusiasts in the campus. Hence, I am very keen on Tepper (Carnegie mellon). Can you please tell me if I would be good fit for Tepper? It would be of immense help if you could advise on what areas I should elaborate on while writing my essays?

Let's dig a bit deeper here with you?
Which product do you want to ship? and in what field? and to do what?? and how does your past experience prove that you are actually capable of doing this??

So, the first thing to think about is your goals, and how they make sense with regards to your experience and the school you are applying to.

Secondly, for Tepper, if you apply right now as is, your chances would not be very high. You have quite little experience in comparison to your peers and your GMAT is relatively low. So, first taking the GMAT again is a great idea (and judging from your TOEFL, I have faith that you can do much better!) Secondly, you might wan to work for one more year that way you can really cleverly plan your application strategy and give yourself enough time to do things in the best possible way, while at the same time gaining more experience, to give you an advantage when you apply.

Let us know what you think, and I'll share some more ideas with you...
