Thanks for your post. To answer your questions:

1) I think your chances are poor, mainly because your GMAT is significantly below these school's average and you come from an over-represented group in the applicant pool. At the same time, your experience and progression as a woman in the male-dominated, automotive industry and in your extra-curricular activities is a plus.
2. You either need to improve your quant score or add program to you target list where you have a better chance of getting accepted.
3. You can try that if you think you will have a better percentile score on the GRE.

Best,
Linda

Thank you for your response!

Could you please suggest MBA programs in the US in which I have reasonable chances with the same score?

Rini,

consider Broad, Kelley, UNC, Purdue, UT Austin, and maybe CMU Tepper.

Best,
Linda

Dear Linda,

Thank you for your advice! I have two questions:

1.
I took the GRE and have improved my quantitative percentile to 96%, my score is 322 Q166 V157.
There has been no other change in my profile, could you please evaluate my chances at MIT Sloan, Yale & Columbia.
I am confused between Yale and Columbia, which do you think is a better fit for me considering my background and post-MBA goals?

2.
I have a cumulative work experience of 4.5 years from July 2008 - January 2013. I am currently pursuing my MBA at a lesser known college in the US, however, I really wish to enter a top-10 college, hence am re-applying for Fall 2014. Do you think this will be considered as a disadvantage in my application?

Regards
Rini

You're welcome. To answer your questions:

1. HBS, MIT, and Stanford are major stretches for you. I would discourage your application. Yale and Cornell are also stretches, but I think you have somewhat of a chance there.
2. If you think you can improve your score (and you should be able to considering your grades and academic background) and you want to have a serious chance at your target programs, you should retake the GMAT.. However, change something about your approach to preparation that you think will improve your score.
3. Yes.
