Hi

This is Sathya. This is my first post in this forum. I need your help in evaluating my profile.

I am from India. I took GMAT last month and scored a 730
Score - 730 (Q - 49 V - 41)
AWA - 4
IR - 5

I know that the AWA and the IR score are slightly on the lower side. But still I just want to go ahead and apply for colleges with this score. I am looking for Fall 2014 entry and am planning on applying in the early action so that I might have better chances of landing a scholarship.

Profile:

10th grade - 91%
12th grade - 96%
UG CGPA - 8.5 (in scale of 4 - 3.5)

WE:
Sony India (1+ years)
Will complete 3 years by the time I get into a b-school.

Extracurriculars:

1) Have been playing football and represented college.
2) Have been an active member of Youth Red Cross during my college days.
3) Have organized many events in college and in office.

Am currently working for Sony as a software engineer( I know am competing with a larger pool of candidates!!)

Please let me know where do i exactly stand among the competing group. Let me know what are my chances of getting into a top b - school. Also , please provide me the list of colleges that I could apply for.

Thanks in advance for your help!!

My post MBA goals:

Since am working for a product based company and am directly working on product (TV) am more interested towards working on the field of Consumer electronics after my MBA. I am working on the technical side of things now. But post-MBA, I want to work more towards the management side shaping up a product.

Targeted Program:

I am looking for an MBA in Technology management and am in need of a scholarship. So I have done some research on my own and got to know that the following programs are pretty good for candidates with technical background:

CMU Tepper
Emory Goizueta
Texas Mccombs
Gerogetwon Mcdonough
ISB
NUS
Nanyang

I am targeting FALL 2014 intake.

How good are my chances of getting into the above mentioned schools?
How do you rate my chances of getting a scholarship in the above colleges?
Also, please let me know if there are any other decent b-schools wherein I have a fair chance of getting in with a scholarship!
