My queries:

2) Weakness/Strength in profile which I should hide/highlight during applications.
3) I would plan to apply to the colleges in the 1st round itself. How feasible/ advisable it is to do so?

Hi missionxl,

Thank you for posting. With your candidacy, the biggest challenge you will face is differentiating your application from a competitive pool. For your application, I recommend you read this case study of an Indian engineer who was accepted into a top MBA program. It should provide insight that you can use: http://www.stacyblackman.com/comprehens ... ies/case2/

We also provide free school specific advice for the programs you are considering here:
