Thanks for writing us here good sir.
So first of all, from what you have written here, you have a kinda "middle-of-the-road" profile. What you gotta do to get in, is to find the things you have secreted away that are UNIQUE, and then to STAND OUT. (not so easy we know... but it's your mission)

I think your school evaluation may be a bit off. You have two categories "Ambitious and Safe" and I think you need a third one. Usually we like to use "Dream/ambitious" "Competitive" and "safe". And I think you may be over-evaluating yourself. Both HKUST and ISB for example have average GMAT scores that are well above yours, which would put them solidly in the Ambitious list. Tepper, Mccombs and USC are all schools which would go in "competitive" and not safe.... which shows us that you have no real safe school (not a good thing). To choose a safe school, for starters you want the admitted students to have 20-50 points LOWER on average GMAT than yours...

So, a bit of re-evaluation will help you here, dude...

Thanks for the reply ,

Can you please share the source if possible from where you have the average GMAT score for HKUST? HKUST usually publishes a range of GMAT score

Thanks
