I provide software solutions and services to customers located in Asia and Europe.
I don’t have any budget responsibility and don’t have any direct reports.

I request you to evaluate my profile and let me know the schools I have good chances at.

Hello,

You've got great experience - both in the professional realm and in the community realm. Your GMAT score is slightly low for INSEAD, LBS but I think you still have a chance at those programs and should apply. You should be competitive at the other programs on your list.

The biggest question mark in your profile that I see is, "Why do you need an MBA to reach your career goal?" You are already an IT consultant and already have experience working at Oracle, one of your target companies. It would seem that you could transition to Senior IT consultant pretty easily without an MBA degree. It's going to be very important that your career narrative demonstrates that you really need an MBA to reach your career goal -- right now, I'm not sure you'll be able to prove that case. Consider making your career goal slightly more ambitious (but still realistic!).

Good luck!
