Please let me know ..
1. Is my profile competitive enough for Top 10 US B Schools? What are the major loop holes in my candidacy?
2. Is my GMAT score enough? I am asking this because Indians tend to have the highest GMAT in any incoming class. Will additional 30-40 points create a difference?
3. I do not have any international exposure and it is highly unlikely that my firm will send me for overseas projects? How can I improve on this front?

Thanks!!

Expert's post
There are several things in your profile which would potentially make for a good run at the top 10. Don't worry too much about no international experience--remember, your being from India is an international experience to US business schools. Yes, the Indian appliant typically has a high GMAT score (like you), but a marginal extra 20 or 30 points will likely not help you much. Your score is good, I would focus on crafting a compelling story which helps you stand out in the crowd now. Highlight your leadership experience, which is sometimes rare from your applicant pool. The fact that you have been lead consultant and that you have a full four years experience will be attractive. You also seem to be a leader outside work, which is very valuable as an applicant. Adcoms will like that you have not only participated in extracurriculars, but have founded a club. This may indicate to them that you will be a leader both in and out of the classroom and is the kind of icing on the cake which will help you differentiate yourself from other applicants with a similar background. Above all, make sure you have a clear and compelling vision for where you want to go post MBA and try to tie it into your path so far. This will indicate maturity and focus. Let us know if you need additional help.
