Thank you for your posting.

You have many interesting and impressive aspects to your candidacy. The biggest obstacle you have in this process is distinguishing yourself from the masses of Indian candidates -- most of whom have strong work and academic backgrounds. So, distinguishing yourself from your competition is difficult as there are many more qualified candidates than there are allocated spaces.

To be admitted to the schools you are targeting, you are going to have to sell the admissions offices a these schools very hard -- and this has to be done through your application. To get into the caliber school of LBS, Insead, Columbia. Kellogg, Booth or Wharton -- you have to be a world class candidate and every aspect of your candidacy has to be competitive. On your application, please invest the time, energy and resources to make sure that your application is as strong as possible -- if it is not, it will be difficult to achieve your goals. Thus, I recommend that you work with a qualified admissions consultant to help you with your application -- as many successful candidates at these firms do and by not doing so, you will be at a huge competitive disadvantage.

Good luck.
