While you have a chance at these two schools they are both stretch programs and you should not apply to these programs exclusively. Also consider Cornell, Duke, NYU Stern, and UCLA.

Best,
Linda

Thank you for quick response Linda.

I do plan to apply to NYU Stern, Duke Also. What do you think about my chances with London Business School and Insead?

Further, do you think a better GMAT score would improve my chances. I am planning to take up the GMAT again in November and am confident of bumping my score to atleast 750. WOuld it be better to apply in Round 1 with this score or in Round 2 with an improved score?

Your help is much appreciated. :-D :-D

You have a chance at both, especially LBA, because of your excellent grades and work experience. Your chances at INSEAD are poorer because I don't see any international exposure in what you wrote; if you have it and just didn't include it, that's great.

The key factor concerning me is the intense competition among Indians and the fact that many will apply with excellent work experience, good grades and a higher GMAT. But you do have a chance.
