GMAT : 700 (Q50, V35, AWA 5.0)
Nationality: Indian
I have no plans to take GMAT again.

Work Experience:
Duration: 3 years by May 2011
Assistant Manager in R & D Division of Maruti Suzuki India Ltd., India's largest automobile company
- coordinate with vehicle design engineers to plan, schedule and execute validation testing of vehicles under development; give feedback to design teams for improving product durability and reliability
- tendering, negotiation and procurement of lab equipments; this involves dealing with foreign-national suppliers
- Other activities: organized Out-bound Team Building Program for 30 individuals, was instrumental in saving USD 27500 by spearheading Suzuki Global Cost Reduction Initiative in my department, designed a breakthrough fixture for suspension system testing, won several awards in company-wide competitions etc.
- Teach underprivileged children on weekends as a part of company CSR initiative.

[Selling Point: Frugal approach to product development, melange of Japanese and Indian work culture]


Education:
Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.) in Production and Industrial Engineering, Aggregate score: 70/100
from Delhi College of Engineering, one of the premiere engineering colleges in India.

Extracurriculars:
- Led an 11 member team to design and fabricate a high mileage concept car which won the award for the ‘Best Design Proposal’ at the SAE Supermileage Competition held at Marshall, MI, USA in June 2007
- Chairman, ‘Society of Automotive Engineers - DCE Collegiate Club’
- Technical Head of the annual national level students’ Technical Meet (a four day event)
- Project Coordinator, Aashayein – ‘the ray of hope’, a project of Association for India’s Development (AID) Delhi Chapter to teach children of an underprivileged locality (2007-08)

Hobbies and Interests:
- Travelling, mountain trekking (scaled the Dharwa Pass, 4130 m, on Himalayas) , swimming
- Nature conservation (member of Delhi Greens), photography
- Writing, directing and acting in plays; Watching theatre
- Playing soccer, table-tennis and online chess
- Reading books on wide range of subjects


Career Goals:
Short Term:
Consulting, preferably in Product Life-cycle Management
(my education in Production and Industrial Engineering, and my work experience in Product Development, I believe, go well with this career path.)
Long Term:
Help build thriving enterprises and industries in emerging markets

Choice of B-Schools:
I am looking for a program that is a mix of case based and experimental learning. I don't find lecture based teaching to be appealing. I guess a general management program will be right fit for my career aspirations.
I have already applied to ISB and Haas.
Planning to apply to Ross, Kellogs and Darden in R2.

Questions:
Am I sensible in my choice of B-schools? What else would you suggest?
Any comments on how can I make my application stronger, because I don't have strong leadership experience in my current organization?

Your choice of schools looks reasonable. You might want to throw Duke into the mix because its program does a great job of preparing students for consulting careers.

You can strengthen the leadership portion of your essay by giving examples of leadership and innovation at work and in extracurricular situations. Even if your job title did not necessarily put you in a leadership role, there may have be instances in which you led teams/projects and showed leadership in some way.

Finally, make sure you hit the R2 deadlines. There are less seats left in R3 and applications submitted after R2 are scrutinized a bit more closely.
