Request evaluation [#permalink]

would like you to evaluate my credentials and reccomend a shortlist of colleges ( if possible)
Work ex : Five years as an entrepreneur ( founder promoter , along with five of my colleagues , of a VC funded venture in India). Currently is the second largest reatil chain in its category. Well known brand name in the category in the country.
Before the venture 3 years of experience in marketing in one of the most admired marketing companies in India ( market leader)
Gmat : 710
Gpa : not vey high % score in the Indian grading system ( 65%). Have completed engineering from one of the better coleges in India and also completed MBA from a premier institution in India.
Looking at doing a course to hone my finance skills to be able to start a new venture in future.
First, I have been active in the domestic scene. India has seen some exponential growth in the last few years along with China. I plan to start a new venture gain and this time be active in the international scene. To specifically buiild my skill sets in finance and to be able to head a new venture, plan to do an international MBA.
Second, an MBA earlier was more of a logical progression for a job after completing my engineering. Having worked for more than 8 yrs , 5 yrs as an entrepreneur an MBA tis time would be to equip myself more with skills that I lack and to be able to be part of a network which I can leverage for my future ventures.
I am not clear about outside work and school , dont think had the time ( after starting a company almost all the time wa spent nurturing and growing it ).
Hmm, I see a potentially big weakness in your application being a lack of community involvement and other activities/hobbies/pursuits outside of your job. Without this, you may have a hard time getting into a top U.S. school.
Also, be aware that top b-schools will be skeptical of someone who already has an MBA. They'll really want to know why you want a second one, which is almost unheard of.
what i meant was hv not done any part time course or part time job outside my work.
As far as community service is concerned have been very closely involved in a movement for the human rights of people with disability , started as a small event but in three year has become a ntional event.
Also I have been ( during my college days ) cultural secretaty of the college, president of Y's lings club and secretary of leo club.
