Awards: Presented a green building design at IIT-B which got the best design award... Many on local platforms
ECCA: Nothing great..If it counts i was a gaming geek throughout..Had my own clan & stuff,won several competitions(Nothing on International Level)

Had job offers from construction field but was very much interested in Marketing Research & Stuff..Applied to a start up by an IIM-A Alumni..convinced them for an internship..Was selected later(Topped their Aptitude test too) & was involved in many market research studies & several projects(No Significant Leadership Roles)..Presently involved in a one year consulting assignment for a Group of Hotels.

Hi,
Welcome to the GMAT club! First of all, congrats on your decision to pursue an MBA. As far as work experience, grad business school applicants tend to be older and have leadership experience. While you're applying (from now to next year), try to take on more leadership roles and create a strong background. Focus on results rather than activities though. The quantity may not be as important as quality. When admission staff look at your work experience, they are most interested in full-time jobs. Summer internships and part-time work do not provide the kind of experience, responsibility, and accountability schools want.

Also looks like you're targeting the top 20 B's schools. You will have to have a high GMAT score, to get into your top school of choice. This forum has a lot of resources and study material that you can use to start your preparation. Most top B schools accept scores well above 680.
I'd suggest starting giving a diagnostic test and see where you stand, identify your weaknesses, and go from there.

Good luck on your preparation!

Thanks a lot for your inputs.But i was looking more towards inputs on What should be the ideal work ex for such a profile.What other courses should be considered that might add some weight to it.Being an Indian Engineer Male (Although a different job profile) what are my best chances to get in to a dream program.
And Yes i am trying a lot,but it is quite difficult to get a leadership role so early without an MBA in this industry.Still, 6 months from now i guess things would start changing.

If it helps : Targeting a 720 Plus and am pretty sure i can.
