I can't comment on IIMA aND IIMB. You have a competitive profile for ISB, HKUST, and NUS, but you need to fix the elements that were criticized by HKUST in its feedback.

The first job of any MBA reapplicant is to assess how he can improve. Clearly you have significantly improved your verbal score and that will definitely help. You hopefully will also present your goals clearly. Finally, I encourage you to obtain an Application Evaluation. If you made mistakes in presenting yourself, you want to know about them now -- before you repeat them during this application season.

Best,
Linda
