Hey Sridhar - unfortunately your profile is both very common, and also yours is below average in many ways (GMAT and GPA). You're going to have a hard time at the "top" bschools. If you're determined to go to one of the better American business schools then you really need to boost that GMAT score and increase both quant and verbal.
The bugle and salsa stuff is interesting but that's not going to carry you into bschool. The schools that Linda at Accepted suggested are in range with your current profile but you'd still need to have very strong essays - and it sounds like you haven't done much (any?) research on schools yourself.
We recommend starting with The Indian's Guide to Getting In
- a guide written exactly for guys with your profile. It's way cheaper than admissions consulting
(we know how everyone's freaked out with the rupee right now) and it lays out the challenges that you're facing. You should also read through the other profile reviews we've done in the forum here since many people have a very similar background to yours and we've covered this information before.
If you want to come back at us with specific questions after you've spent some time on figuring out what schools you're interested in (and why) then we'd be happy to help out further.
A higher GMAT would help though... Probably not what you want to hear but if you're serious about this then that's the next step to take.
Good luck with everything!!!EssaySnark
