Ekta,

Thanks for your post.

I have seen a lot of Indian grade percentages. My understanding is that an 80 is an excellent final mark. If you end up with a 700+ GMAT, you would have a competitive profile at the schools you are considering, although Harvard would be a stretch and it's possible that some of the others would also be stretches, depending on your GMAT.

Your lack of international exposure would be a negative at INSEAD. The US schools certainly like international experience, but they do not value it as much as does INSEAD and to a lesser extent the English schools.

Regarding the GMAT, aim for the highest score possible and then deal with the results.

For more suggestions on choosing schools, please see "Best MBA Programs: A Guide to Choosing the One for You."

Best,
Linda
