MBAgoal,

Given your GMAT score, lack of extracurriculars, and the strength of your demographic (Indian, technology) I think Indiana would be long-shot school for you, but not impossible. The schools you have a shot at--Michigan State, Babson, Pittsburgh, South Carolina, Case Western, U. of Arizona--are all outside of the top 20 (U.S. News). If you can raise that score above 650 and get involved I would recommend doing so. See Accepted.com's advice on low GMAT.

Good luck,

Hello Paul,

Thanks a lot for your valuable inputs. I really appreciate that.

BTW, I forgot to mention that I am planning to go for Part-time MBA. Would that change anything?

thanks again!

MBAGOAL,

Yes, part-time programs are easier to get into so that's a good strategy. You would still want to do the things I mentioned in my first reply.

Good luck,
