shreyrmehta,
You have a strong profile, especially for your age. Your eco-tourism theme is a strong one and you have good branding and solid international exposure. I see no red flags in your profile. Your biggest challenge is simply your demographic. So you may want to hedge your bets by adding other schools to your list (we could discuss). Feel free to send me your CV for a closer look: paulbodine@yahoo.com.

Hi Shrey,

You have a remarkable profile with good GMAT scores. Your profile is diverse and you would stand a good chance in b-school(s) if you can skillfully showcase these achievements and skills in your application essays and demonstrate the same during final interviews. With 4 yrs. of work experience you are in a perfect stage of your career which most of the b-schools look for. You may also target schools like: Tuck, Duke, Ross, LBS and Cambridge. You can also try your chances in b-schools by clicking http://www.general-ed.com/chances-of-bschool

Let me know in case of other queries you might have. You can PM your details to discuss profile in detail or selection of b-schools.

Cheers!!
Neha
