Hi Nattapong,
It is hard to suggest schools based on the info you have provided.
some pointers to selecting a school: look at their curriculum to see if it fits your requirements/ career objectives. i.e you need to determine the best fit on several factors beyond the statistics you have provided. for example, there are schools that have a strong tech-centric curriculum, so if your target industry is technology, then these schools might be ideal for you. the schools on the west coast will obviously help you network with tech industries. this is just an example for tech focused individuals. as you research the programs/schools, you will figure out which schools are best fit for you. again, you will have to research to find out which schools encourage applicants with lesser yrs of work experience. the schools that immediately come to mind are Tepper and Harvard.
but ultimately it will depend on the how well you are able to bring out your fit for a particular school.
also, i feel currently its a bit too late as an international applicant for you to apply to most schools. but some schools might still be open. please note that as international applicant, we are supposed to send our applications for one of the early rounds. i can only think of columbia that must be still open for applications.
again, if you gunning for the top 10-15 schools, then i would suggest that you aim for a higher score on GMAT and TOEFL. i speak with no knowledge about your other professional / personal achievements. so if those are exceptional, and you bring something unique to the table, then your current GMAT / TOEFL score should not be a hindrance. However you will have to effectively project this in your essays.
all the best!!!
i hope this helps.

Thanks, Vishwa. Nice job with your advice to Nattapong.

One thing I would add is that each progressive round makes the application process more competitive, and this is even more important at top schools. For example, although there are schools including Columbia still accepting applications, the Early Decision Round at Columbia makes it even more competitive to get in.

Regarding the point on international applicants, generally being accepted 3-4 months before the start of the program is good enough, even in high volume places like India. Hence, most business schools set a March deadline for international applicants, with decisions by May/June.

Good luck with your applications.
