What left behind were general eduacation courses like (spanish, art, music...) I had the option of doing these course through distance learning. Hence, i have opted for it and stated working full time (not internship) from Feb 2009 itself. I am quite not sure if this can be counted as work experience too. If it is then i will be having 4yrs and 6 months of work ex.

Hi Madhu,

Thank you for sharing your profile. While your work experience is VERY impressive, I am worried about your low GPA and GMAT score. I do think that if you are able to pull your GMAT score above a 700, then your undergraduate GPA could be overlooked, but if not, it might be hard to overcome. Still, like I said, your professional leadership experience is far above that of most Indian male applicants (or most applicants across the board), so that should go a long way.

With your current scores, I think that Purdue, Kelley, USC would be good target schools. NYU may be a reach but is still worth trying for. If you improve your GMAT score to 700+, I'd suggest you could try for even more competitive top 25 programs (with some safeties in the mix).

Best of luck,
Mili
