Hi,

Thanks for sharing your profile and apologies for the delayed response! I'm sorry to hear you didn't get accepted this year.

I'd suggest retaking the GMAT and trying to push past 650+ to increase your chances. It's difficult to say which programs you should apply to, but I would target programs that are less competitive than these (e.g., University of Maryland). Given your lack of post-college extracurriculars/community activities, Indian IT professional background, and low GMAT, it would be tough to get into McCombs and the other schools you applied to unless you made significant improvements to your profile (e.g., raise your GMAT, take up extracurricular and community activities in a meaningful way).

Good luck,
Mili
