Hello Everyone,

Here is my profile:

Demographic: Male, 28, India

Educational Background: B.Tech. Mechanical Engineering, GPA 3.3

GMAT - 660(81%) - Quant 49 , Verbal 31.

Work experience: I have 6 years of work experience including 3 years of experience working as a SAP BI consultant and the reminder as an entrepreneur as the CEO of an Engineering Manufacturing Plant. I am also serving as a Director and share holder in a Ferro Alloys Manufacturing Unit in India for the last 2 years.

Recommendations: I am planning to submit the following recommendations:
* My supervisor from my time as SAP BI consultant
* Managing Director of the company I am serving as a director.
* Head of the mechanical department of my undergrad institute.

Extracurriculars: I am an active Volunteer to an Non-government Organisation(NGO) in India and work as the managing administrator of an Industrial Training Institute run by the NGO. This institute in rural part of India provides industrial training to poor and underpriviged students. Such training enables the kids to have much better job opportunities as the part of a skilled work force and work as machine operators, electrician etc.

Goals: My goal is to continue learning and make myself better at problem solving, leadership, and decision making. I want to get into an instute which can provide me the fundamentals to become the best person I can be and contribute to my company and society to the best of my abilities.

Schools: I am interested in the fields of Finance, Entrepreneurship and International Trade preferably in the top 25 B-schools in the US. I am open to suggestion regarding the schools which would be best suited for me.I would prefer the schools in the south east region of the United States but will be willing to move elswhere for a good college.

Here are the schools I'm considering:
* Duke University (Fuqua) ,
* University of Virginia (Darden) ,
* Emory University (Goizueta)
* University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill (Kenan-Flagler)
* Havard ( not sure this is a good idea with my GMAT score though)

Feedbacks are welcome.

Thank you

Your GMAT is going to be a handicap for all 5 schools you mentioned. You will be applying from a pool of thousands (ethnicity-wise) and it'll be instrumentally harder for you to be admitted when the next Indian comes in with a 730 GMAT. See if you can boost up your GMAT score and if not, don't worry about it and just apply. Harvard will be like a lottery ticket - if you get in, great; if not, don't beat yourself over your head. All the other schools will still be hard because of your GMAT score.
