You come from a very competitive demographic and from what you present here your profile is similar to many top candidates who apply to these schools from India. While I would definitely not discourage you from applying to the likes of H-S-W-Sloan, I would encourage you to look at a few other schools where your application might stand out a bit more. These include such schools as Booth, Ross, Johnson and Fuqua. I just want you to realize that the admissions rates for schools like H-S-W-Sloan for Indian candidates coming from IT is about half of what the stated acceptance rates are -- so this would mean about 4% for Stanford. Not great odds.

As for your background, I would really emphasize some of your not so mainstream qualities including your writing, fitness and film making. I might also look towards ways of integrating your creative energies into your career. If possible, before you apply, I might also look to get some definable leadership experiences so that you can integrate them into your essays and your interviews.

Hi Kamesh,

Welcome to the forum...

Your profile looks pretty impressive with good GMAT & GPA. With 3+ yrs. of work experience, you are in an ideal phase of your career to plan for MBA. Well your list of b-schools sounds pretty ambitious, but of course you can make through by writing strong essays & working hard on interviews. I would suggest you to target some realistic b-schools like: Kellogg, Haas, Tuck, Columbia, Yale, Duke, Cornell, McCombs, Kenan-Flagler & INSEAD-Singapore. You can also try your chances in b-schools by clicking http://www.general-ed.com/chances-of-bschool . The avg. GMAT range for these b-schools fall between 630-750, you have fair chances of being accepted. The above schools also have good placement rate in consultancy post-MBA.

Having said this, you should focus on your application essays & interviews as these are the deciding factors to convert your chances from application to admission.

Let me know in case of further queries. You can also PM me your number to have a detail discussion over your profile or selection of b-schools.

Cheers!!
Neha
Giving KUDOS is a decent way of saying thanks!!

Kamesh,
The good:
GMAT score
Making short films and writing novels (this can be really good or average depending on what level of achievement you can show. Have you published something at the national level? If yes, then you can aim high. If not, then you need to tone down your school list)

The bad:
Indian IT male.
Leadership at work: What kind of achievements do you have? What level of impact did you have on your team/company/client?

You should definitely apply to few of your dream schools but expand your list to include realistic schools such as Duke, Darden, Ross, Chicago, Haas, ISB.

Also I am not sure how your long term career goal tie back to your short term and career progression till date. Are you applying for 2013 or 2014?
