I would recommend you apply to Cornell, Duke, Ross, and Booth from the list above. Also consider, Yale, Duke, Darden, and UCLA, although they are not on your list.

Best,
Linda

You certainly have a chance at any of these schools, but the competition, especially among Indians, is intense. i believe, your GGPA and GMAT are a little low for your demographic at these programs I think. So yes you have a chance, but your chances are better at the programs I listed. Don't apply only to these 5, unless you apply only to these 5 round 1, see how you do, and apply to more R2.
