Hi prakhag,

You have a strong application. Given your strong numbers, your focus now should be on differentiating yourself from your peers. I recommend you read this case study of an Indian candidate who was accepted into Columbia, Tuck, and MIT:

Remember that MBA programs are looking to cultivate future leaders, so it will be important to emphasize your leadership experience as much as possible.


Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
