Hi incub23,

Thanks for your post. Your numbers indicate that you have the intellect and focus to thrive in a top tier MBA program. Nothing about your story makes me think there is any reason why you cannot be admitted, but nothing stands out telling me why you should be admitted. All of the reasons why a top program would admit you are in the details of your work experience, personal experiences, personality, values and overall story.

I recommend you read this case study of an Indian engineer who was accepted into a top MBA program. It should provide insight for your candidacy:

We have a list of free school overviews for the programs you are interested in here:
