Positives:
1) International work exp
2) Startup
3) Decent GMAT

Weakness
1) Goal clarity - As I see it for now
2) Low on extra currics / social work
3) I.I.M - Surprisingly this weakness could have been eradicated if you were aiming for Tech MBA programs, such as Kelley, Smith, Tepper, NTU etc.

Further questions:
When you say marketeer in entertainment industry, do you wish for a corporate role or entrepreneurship?

"Though i am not really stringent because it is out of interest and i am ignorant of the courses in Strategy and Consulting."

Well you have to be clear and as accurate as possible about your goals, that is one of the first attribute which a B-school admissions committee will notice about an applicant. Being casual about it is very risky.

Hi,

You have a decent GMAT/work-exp. and an avg. GPA. You need to be focused on short/long term goals and post-MBA career. Owning a start-up with international exposure can be add-on in your profile. You can try your chances in b-schools by clicking http://www.general-ed.com/chances-of-bschool

Let me know in case of further queries you might have.

Cheers!!
Neha

Are you sure Marketing is your thing ? Would you be able to compete with native speakers there. In US the expectation is higher. If you are from likes of DPS RK Puram etc then I won't worry as these guys speak English at par with natives.
In contrast other MBA jobs like Consulting and Finance involve an analytical component, which is why Indians are able to get these jobs.

I really liked reading your portfolio and believe that you have a lot of distinguishing factors in your background. Although you have some middle of the road qualifications (especially GPA), I would not let this serve as any sort of detriment to your goals. I agree with the list of schools that you have listed, but would add UCLA and USC to your list given your entertainment career goals.
