As you know, you are in an extremely competitive sub-group of applicants. Simply put, there are many more qualified Indian male candidates who apply to top MBA programs than what most schools accept -- so many highly qualified Indian male candidates fall short in their goals of gaining admissions to top notch MBA programs.

We have worked with many Indian candidates over the year and helped them successfully gain admissions to programs like Harvard, Stanford and Wharton. The approach that we take it to work to distinguish your candidacy as much as possible through essays, recommendations, interviews, and other aspects of your application. This is not an easy task to accomplish as it takes a bit of risk taking with your application. It is also gotten a bit more tricky this year as many of these top programs have cut down the number of essays on their application thus making every word that much more valuable to your cause.

Lastly, if you are applying this year, we recommend that you apply during R2 -- and not wait until R3 to submit your application. If applying next year, we recommend that you apply R1.

You have good GMAT Score. However your international work experience and academics are decent and impressive.

The list of B Schools you have selected are very good and among the top B Schools. As per your GMAT Score and profile you should also focus to apply for within top 15 US B-schools. Lack in extra curricular activities can be offset by submitting a good essay and working hard on your application and interviews. Most schools see a combination of all these things to grant an admission.

It is highly advisable in your case to focus on your application evaluation essays. This is where you can demonstrate your leadership qualities, achievements, professional vision and other abilities. A well presented and perfectly written essay is absolutely critical to make a strong case for yourself during the final interview.

Feel free to post any other query or concern that you might have.
