Allright sir, nice GMAT!
Overall you seem to have a fine and dandy profile. It is a bit of a shame about the low GPA though, and you should address when you apply.
Another tip, is that you should try and present yourself as being in the Automotive Industry rather than IT. As you know, there are already a flood of IT candidates, but not all that many Automotive.

And you didn't write them here, but hopefully also your goals will be within Automotive as well.

If you are going for strong International programs with general management, I'd look at Duke, INSEAD, Tepper, Anderson as well. Kellogg too.

See which of these schools fit your location desires and goals.

and if you have any other questions, just drop us a line:

Hi Jon and Raj,

Thank you for the response. I appreciate you taking the time to provide valuable feedback. My goals are to obtain a general management position within automotive industry but I do need to tweak how I have labelled my employment history in some of the applications. Thanks for the tip. If I am unsuccessful with this round of applications I will definitely reach out to you in the early spring to help organize and make a push for the 2013 application cycle.

Thanks again,

Graham
