keeplearning,

Sorry for the long delay in replying. I didn't see your post until just now. Your fairly common profile (male, Indian, IT), less-than-awesome GMAT, and age relative to managerial experience (not a lot, I'm assuming) make me think top ten schools will be a bridge too far for you. Of the four you mentioned, Stern would be the most doable but I would still regard that as a definite longshot for you.

Apologies again for the late answer.

How can you say top 10 schools are a long shot for this guy? He has demonstrated his academic aptitude both in his home country and through Master's GPA in the US. He would like to attend business school so that he can cultivate and grow his leadership ability. He should be competitive at many of the top 10's.

Sorry, Indian males with his academic success and IT background are a dime a dozen (and on average have a significantly higher GMAT). Why would he beat out all the other Indian clones looking for a spot in the top ten?
