While you are indeed coming from a very large applicant pool, your 760 GMAT will really help you stand out. Especially if you can get some interviews and prove that you are normal and not some kind of braniac without a personality, it will really get you far. Demonstrate your employability and show your history of working in teams to help convince the adcoms that you'd be a good addition to the class. you could really take a swing at just about any school, but only because the Indian male IT pool is so large, I would recommend you apply to at least 4 or five schools in the first round to be safe. Let us know if we can help. I have a lot of experience with Indian clients and helping them stand out.
