nikhilvinci,

You are certainly building an impressive profile. There's a lot of good leadership in your profile for someone your age. Given the numbers of male Indians who apply to top U.S. schools, you will want to raise that GMAT score. Other than that, I recommend continuing to do what you're doing. You may want to begin thinking about what themes unify all your activities. That is, you've done a staggering number of things but you want to be able to show how they all relate to each other.

Hope this helps,

hi paul
thanks for the reply . I have also thought about giving Gmat again but the problem is this semester ( 9 subjects ) is very busy and i am unable to find time to prepare. Is there anyway i can explain then about the lack of time to prepare and make it up in some other way . i will really appreciate your help on this .

awaiting you reply

cheers

hi
Also all these internships that were done were done with good results and have job offers from both.
Also these internships done were well thought out , in respect that each one will help in my main goal that is entreprenuership.
Is it ok if i can mention the story that connects these internships together to give me my main goal .
Awaiting you reply

nikhilvinci,

There's no need to explain to the adcoms why you have the score you do. Your explanation won't matter much and besides your score is a good one. Yes, explain the theme that unifies your internships. Explain what your plan is.

Good luck,
