Expert's post
Hi Anshul,

Thanks for sharing your profile. Overall you have a competitive profile at many of the programs you mentioned. Your GMAT could be a bit higher but after 4 times I wouldn't suggest re-taking and 700 is competitive generally. You have certainly demonstrated quantitative ability in your work experience and have had team work experiences as well as extensive international experiences which are all strengths, and show a lot of what you might bring to a b-school class.

I would think you have a chance at all of those programs, including LBS and INSEAD and those 2 are so internationally-focused that your experiences would be a plus, and you might really enjoy them (given that the make-up of the class, for example is so global at both of those programs, while US programs tend to be 70-75% Americans).

The biggest key step for you at this point is working on those essays and really ensuring you get your points across about who you are as a person, what you'll bring to the class, why you need the MBA, and why those schools are right for you. And you'll want to be sure to emphasize your international experiences and team-work and people management experiences.

Good luck to you and let us know if you have additional questions.
