Remove NUS from the list. You can do better.

You have a good profile and you should have few top 10 schools in your target list. It is very difficult to answer those 3 questions without seeing your essays. Do you have international experience? what about your recommendations? Which college did you study?

Good luck!

Thanks a lot for the quick response. To answer your questions -

1. I am still working on my essays and may come back to you for feedback on those.
2. Recommendations from - product-manager from my prev company (ex-manager for 2 years) and country HR head, prev company (for CSR contributions)
3. Studied from India (LN mittal institute of Information technology)
4. I completed 2 months internship in Mittal Steel, Kazakhstan. Not much apart from that. Although, I do have peers in US/UK with whom I interact on a daily basis.

Which 3-4 US schools should I be aiming at apart from ISB? (first choice is MC, second is General management)
