Hello seeker1984, thanks for your question.
As you know, your GPA will be a challenge. Was there an extraordinary circumstance that caused your low marks? Did your GPA rise as you progressed through undergrad? If so, you might try to explain these factors in the optional essay. Better yet, do you have any other analogue that is a better representation of your academic ability and potential? Programs will want to know that you can handle the material. Your high GMAT serves as an indicator, but you could use another one to mitigate.
Your competitiveness will come down to the quality of your leadership experience. Can you draw upon “moments” when you truly led both in and out of work: influenced individuals and organizations, drove results, took initiative? You seem to have solid leadership experiences both in and out of work; draw upon those to differentiate yourself and to mitigate your GPA.
In terms of your post-MBA goals, paint a picture that cohesively ties together your past, present, and future. Demonstrate to the admissions committees that your desired career path necessitates an MBA. If you really want to end up in India as a dairy consultant, you will have to make a convincing case that the program you choose best prepares you to do achieve that, as well as your short-term goal. I can’t tell you what your story to the admissions committees will be (and you’re not asking me to), just saying that you should make a logical and plausible case – which you know. Moreover, you might speak to what a US or international program would give you that IIM would not, since you turned it down.
I’d say you have a shot at all the programs you mention, but I’m not sure how much of a drag your GPA will be. Depends on how well you can mitigate that.
Best of luck!
