I wanted to get a fair idea with regards to my chances at top US B Schools ( H/W/S). I'm 27, planning to apply at the end of this year.
Profile :
Indian Male, GMAT - 710, Degree - Integrated Masters of Science in Statistics and informatics( not Engineering technically ) from IIT. Rank ( 10/55 ) in class. CGPA - 7.8/10
Age : 27
Work Exp - Associate, Completed 3 years Working at an Investment Bank in Mumbai, India. Complete process ownership of approx 5 Bill USD. ( Handle a side of the desk on my own ). Shifting to US permanently in a couple of months
Extra Acads - Sufficient social work ( to fill in my CV ), co-founded a Technology Consulting Group at IIT to market in-house technologies to the industry and was successful in selling a couple of them

I understand my GMAT is a bit low vis-a-vis peers from my background and I'm fine with improving upon that, but beyond that what do you think ? Would be grateful to get a fair idea.
Also, are there any viable chances of scholarship for someone from my background at these Schools ?

If you do improve the GMAT a bit, I would consider the top programs you mention to probably be reasonable reaches. I say “probably” because it depends on certain things that aren’t yet clear. E.g., your career looks interesting and impressive – but these programs want to see leadership and demonstrated impact at work, as well as advancement, that stands out among accomplished peers. If you can show such a track record, it would help make you qualified for such programs. Also, your IIT tech consulting is a great activity to mention, but all these programs want to see some interesting current dimension to your life beyond work (t doesn’t necessarily have to be community service).

So, to summarize – it’s possible that you’re qualified for the top programs, and they would be reasonable reaches in that case, assuming improved GMAT and the other factors I mention.
