Honestly you're a long shot for the schools you've listed. There's nothing wrong with you - you're just up against a lot of high caliber folks whom the adcom will likely prefer (and by benchmarking you against other Indians, there are more than enough that the adcoms would rather take - there are a lot of Indian engineers who have worked and lived abroad for a number of years already, particularly in the US and Europe, and these folks are preferred simply because there's a better chance they are already comfortable in a western environment, and also they are more attractive to recruiters who know that they have worked in a western environment).

In your case, you need to focus on schools where your GMAT is a big enough asset that they will overlook these issues -- and that means looking at schools outside the top 16 like USC, UNC, Tepper, Georgetown, etc. as well as UK schools like Oxford and Cambridge (but then again these UK schools attract a lot of folks with extensive international experience). Alternatively, you may want to look at ISB as well.

Thanks a lot Alex,
It really helped in understanding where stand. I am thinking about applying for ISB and INSEAD because both are 1 year and I want to continue in the same field after my study.

However I want to come back to India after my MBA course and hence thinking about the financial aspect of the same. I did some research about the US & UK colleges. Do you think I should apply to Imperial, Oxford or Kelley, tuck and Duke.

What do you think my chances are to get the scholarship and how much because without that I will not be able to study there as I intend to come back. Also do you think that once I come back to India these colleges will have the weightage which will help me in getting good job?

Thanks again for helping.
