Hello there!
As an Indian Tech male with a 680 and a 2.5 your chances at the first four schools on your list will be slim. This doesn't mean you can't apply to them, because you should apply to the one or two that you love best. But, taking into consideration the huge pool you come from, and the numbers you have, the best thing you can do to build yourself a solid strategy that will secure you an admit is to add a few schools to your list in which your chances would be Competitive to Good. Right now, the list you have is schools in which your chances would mostly be stretch, and selected a good school list is a vital part of any strategy.

Hope this helps,

Sure. Schools like Goizueta, Kelly, Olin would offer you solidly competitive chances, and if you wanted a more "safe" school, look at schools ranked 30-50 on US News - Mays, Foster, Krannert, Broad, etc.
