Your verbal score will raise concern about your skills in that area at most top programs. In order to get into the best program, I encourage you to prepare again and retake the exam.

Good luck!

roentgen007,

It's difficult to say what your chances are because you mentioned nothing about your leadership or community profile. Your negatives are the commonality of your background (male, Indian, IT) and the fact that you seem to move from job to job fairly often. Given that your GMAT is not especially high for your profile, I would say your chances are poor at INSEAD, UCLA, Chicago, Kellogg, LBS, and Darden; somewhat better than poor at Michigan, Cornell, Oxford, Judge, and Yale; and decent to good at Cranfield, Indiana, and Purdue.

Good luck,

HI Paul
Thanx for ur assessment. I am sorry, i dint know that i was to mention abt my leadership and community profile too. Here goes...
I hold Leadership experiences as division overall co-ordinator for Samsung's annual day events which I led the team to Runners Up. Also in College I was elected the class representative. I have changed job at 1 a year.,but have since got much more responsibilites than peers, also it shows my risk taking ability also. I unofficially lead a team of small team of 3 for Motorola.

Community service: I have been part of Rotaract during college days. Founding member of the DIversity Council at Verizon, during the Tsunami days, initiated and took part of many help programs for Tsunami victims in India.
Also during my home trips i have been working with couple of NGO like RahatGhar and SavetheChild which are into providing relief to victims of terrorism attacks in Kashmir...

Apart fom that i am a dextrous sportsman, play almost every sport. Have won Gold medal for Badminton at College Meet, Club level medal for Table Tennis and Cricket.
Good recos and good essays to supplement my candidature.
Also last year when i applied in R3 with my prev score of 670 i got an i/w call from Oxford.

I hope that helps....Please let me know what can u tell abt my schools' chances now?
Also if u can suggest me some schools that you think i shud apply at my kinda profile thn let me know.
Thanx for the help...

roentgen007,

Thanks for the additional info. I'll stick with the odds I gave in my previous reply. I can't recommend other schools because I don't know your post-MBA goals.
