Hello,

While your work experience and academics look strong, I consider some of the schools on your list to be unrealistic reaches. You are in a highly over-represented group, which generally presents stellar numbers plus strong experience. From the information provided, I’d consider reasonable-reach US-based schools for your goals to be Yale (from the list), UVA Darden and UCLA Anderson (not on the list). Tepper might be a good on-par. Among the European schools, Insead would be a very high but perhaps reasonable reach, and IE on-par. I’d consider ISB also to be a high reasonable reach, considering the very strong Indian applicant pool.

I'm so glad it's helpful!

As for scholarships for Indians, it's tough, again, because of the over-represented factor. Generally, the more that you represent a "reach candidate" for a b-school, the more chance of a scholarship. So applying to at least some on-par or even safety schools will increase your chances of funding. Then, ideally, with multiple acceptances, you can weigh your options :)
