Also what are my scholarship chances with this profile; and if the chances are low what can be done to improve these chances.

Thank you for your posting.

To start off with, you come from a vey competitive demographic where there are many more qualified candidates than accepted students so every aspect of your candidacy has to be compelling.

Based on the information provided, you have strong academics and adequate work experience (not particularly distinguishing -- so this makes it a bit more competitive again). However, with a well crafted application, I believe that you can obtain multiple acceptances -- however, this means preparing strong applications that are compelling and competitive on every front. If you do not do so, your competitive demographic will work against you and I am afraid that you will fall short at many of your targeted programs.

I would also recommend getting all applications completed by R1.

See my comments about each school below:


Rotman: Very competitive for Indian applicants as there is an abundant pool from both North America and India who apply.
Kenan Flagler: A good choice but school is very popular with Indian applicants who live in North America.
Georgetown: You have to really show compelling reasons that you know the resources and unique perspective of the school.
Indiana: Kelley: A good choice and your chances are strong.
ISB: Very competitive for Indian applicants and have to really work hard to distinguish yourself.
Goizueta Emory: A good choice and your chances are strong.
