I would say a very generic profile.....Nothing different.....Difficult to comment wrt your profile fr top 10 mba.....The colls u mentioned are really competitive GMAt score is nt a problem...bt u need sthn else in ur profile.....ur goals must be different ...i mean story should be convencing and sthn different...otherwise its really difficult...u need to cash on ur local ngo thn and idea of giving back to society.

First of all I want to point out the obvious -- that you are part of a very competitive demographic so every aspect of your candidacy has to be outstanding -- especially for HBS, Stanford and Wharton. Based on what you present here, your chances of getting into one of these programs is low; but if you want to give it a chance, you have to submit an outstanding application with compelling essays, recommendations, resume and interview.

For the other schools on your list, you should be a much more competitive applicant -- however, i want to emphasize again with an outstanding application. If you can (and you still have time to) look for some more volunteer experience as schools very much value this. I might also recommend re-taking the GMAT if your score in not well balanced between verbal and quant. Lastly, I would recommend submitting your application R1 (think it makes a difference for foreign applicants).

I recommend that you contact our office and have our Lead Admissions Consultant give you a candidacy assessment.

Good luck.
