When aiming for top institutes abroad a score above 700 is advisable. Looking at class profile of some of the top schools you have aimed, at Columbia the students scored in the range of 680-760 in their GMAT. Similarly at Wharton’s MBA class of 2012 the students scored in the range of 650-770 in their GMAT and the median GMAT score being 720Kellogg: 80% Range of GMAT score 640 - 750 with mean score715.
So GMAT wise you are in a good position. However GMAT alone won’t determine your chances of admission. Beyond academics plays an equally important role so make sure you showcase it well.
Generally most of the applicants have a good 4-5 years of work. Although it is not just the work experience that counts but also what you did there like-what were your achievements, what initiative you took, what changes you drove in your workplace etc. So if you can show that in 4 years you have demonstrated the skills business schools are looking for you could put in a strong set of essays.
Hence the quality of your work, your academics and beyond academics will play an important role in determining your candidature. Start thinking what makes you unique and what’s that ‘hook’ that will be key to your application. Make sure you follow the ‘show rather than tell’ principle so that the admissions committee could really understand your strengths and differentiating factors.”
