Hi,

Thanks for writing here

Your GMAT is very much in range of the schools targeting.

Areas of Improvement / Highlight

Your extra curricular -- You must highlight your involvement into extra curricular activities to paint a holistic picture of your profile. Pls ensure that you highlight some leadership examples in your essays. Top B-Schools seek some leadership experience and i don't think your work profile has much to talk in terms of structured leadership examples

These top schools receive hundreds of applications from the area of structured finance that you are a part of, so you must be able highlight some unique lessons that you have learnt. Prove that you are BETTER than the other guy with same profile

Express and prove your uniqueness in your essays, you have enough time to enhance your skills

Hope this helps

Good luck

Hi,

With the given information, the shortlisted b-schools should be within your reach. You must skillfully write your application essays and showcase headship qualities, achievements at work place and other aptitudes during final interviews. You can also try your chances in b-schools by clicking http://www.general-ed.com/chances-of-bschool

Feel free to post any other concerns you might have.

Cheers!!
