Dear Aju,
Your foundation as a candidate is very very solid. You not only have a great GMAT but you also have excellent grades (a component that many people lack). For your work experience, I can imagine what it may be like as 2 years at a big 4 in India is pretty much the same for everyone, even if you may have performed better. So, you are off to an excellent start. The big question becomes: What makes you DIFFERENT???

Cause the schools you have listed here will have LOTS of applications with 740s and from Big fours....

So, you need to make yourself STAND OUT. There two ways 1. Be the best – meaning show lots of leadership, lots of acheivments, lots of awards, lots of promotions, etc. 2. Be DIFFERENT- Have a unique vision, unique hobbies, never heard before stories, be funny, curious in your essays.
