I am Nishanth. I gave my gmat last year and scored a 680. I will give it again.

I aspire to bring a change into the society. So, I will set up a school in the future.I prepared my profile accordingly.

Worked with 2 NGOs( YFS and Green Nest).
Taught in a couple of schools on weekends.
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:

Other than these:

I would like to know:

2. which schools suit social entrepreneurship

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

Hey there Nishanth,
Good to hear from you dude, and thanks for dropping by!

So it will be easier to evaluate you once you have your final GMAT, but let's assume a GMAT of 720+ (which you WILL get of course! :) ). With such a GMAT, I think your range would be schools ranked about 10-35, so I think even in the best of cases you will have to adjust your school list a bit. The top schools are very very competitive, and even as an IIT graduate, things will be tough!

So first things first - make sure you get that GMAT! This is a necessary pre-condition for you to apply to those schools you want to get into. And secondly - think about what you have in your profile that is unique. I know you know this already - but you are coming for one TOUGH and BIG applicant pool, and you are going to need to unique stuff in your profile if you are to be competitive at top schools!

To look into schools which are great for social entrepreneurship I'd recommend you look at this website: http://www.beyondgreypinstripes.org It's a fantastic resource with exactly what you are looking for!

Hope this helps,
