gauravtejwani,

Your profile is solid but a little short on work experience and leadership and part of an applicant pool that schools see a lot of. So NYU, Sloan, and Virginia will be longshots, but you should be competitive at the other schools.

Good luck,

Thanks a lot Paul :)

Just a few more points -
* I have led a team of 4 members in my project for Automation Testing.
* I am Automation Lead in my new project as well. My work is to suggest process improvements in already existing framework.

Will these experiences show leadership in my profile. ( I still have 1.25 yr to work on my profile.)

Also, by July 2011, I will have completed 3 yrs in IT industry.

Based on this, can you suggest me a few colleges where I could apply(apart from the ones that I have mentioned)

Once again, thanks for your valuable suggestion.

Cheers.
Gaurav

Gaurav,

Yes, the two experiences you mentioned are definitely leadership and will help you as such. I could mention some other schools if you could tell me what your post-MBA goals are.
