Organized chiguru as a part of YFS. Chiguru is an regional inter school competition.
Spearheaded the CSR activities in my office.
As a part of these activities:

Ensured the completion of a community hall project in a flood prone area.


Other than these:

I would like to know:

P.S. I am looking at something in the Top 20 25 schools.

For Top 20 your GMAT is on the lower side. You have 3 years work experience so you have another 2-3 years in which you can enhance your profile. suggestion would be to bump up your GMAT to 740-770 range.

Contrary to AbhiJ I feel that ypu need to show case your achievements ina well packaged manner. Your score is in the 80% of classes of the class that you are targeting. Spend most of your time, researching about essay and how can you be a best fit for those schools..ypu belong to a good pedigree...dnt worry..

Kudos if my post helps!!

Archit,

Tuck and Darden have told some Indians techies with GMAT 710 to re-take GMAT. If you look at average GMAT scores of Top 15 schools the average GMAT is around 700-720. So you can fairly assume that the average GMAT of accepted Indians would be of the range 740-770(confirmed by admission consultants). Unfortunately the lower end of 80% GMAT range is NOT applicable for Indian techies. Accepted.com has a webinar on this.
Outside the top 20 schools 650- 680 is sufficient as long as the rest of profile is in line and you have the funds :) (they do not offer no cosigner loans).

There is a lot of competition in the Indian-Male-IT category in the top 20 schools. You need to do a few things:
1. Bump up your GMAT score for a better chance. Most of your competition will have a score of 730+.
2. Think clearly about your future. Think about what you want and how you are going to get it. There needs to be a lot of clarity in your thoughts. The points you have jotted down here are resume style - they don't add much value to your profile. You need to present your case passionately, giving a clear picture and a clear idea of what you did for the NGOs and how MBA fits in. You can start a school even if you are not a graduate. How does MBA fit in your plan? Expand your vision. Don't make them feel that you are just saying it to get into the school. You need to explain how you are already treading the chosen path and how an MBA is required to move ahead. Mind you, the investment in an MBA is very high. They will ask you how you intend to get returns on it. So everything should be clearly thought out.
3. You can talk about your modelling/films/sports related experiences/aspirations in one of the essays if the school has something pertinent (hobbies/extra currics). It will make your app more well rounded and wholesome.
4. Research the schools thoroughly to find those that match your aspirations.
