My name is Eeshan Srivastava, 24yr old from New Delhi, India. I will be taking the GMAT for the second time this year and am also seeking to apply for MBA 2014. I would greatly appreciate if you could provide some thoughts on my last year's experience and this year's plan of action.

Xth - 93.2%, XIIth - 88.4%, B.Tech (Computer Science) - 80.6%

Work Experience (~ 3 years)
Lead Engineer at HCL Technologies - Sep 2010 to Mar 2013
Automation Engineer at S&P Capital IQ - Mar 2013 to present

Extra Curricular Activities
Working with Greenpeace, and WFP to spread their online awareness campaigns
Reading classic English Literature and writing poetry
Intermediate knowledge of French
Deep interest in learning about all domains ranging from the Arts to Sciences to Fashion to Entertainment to Medicine. (I believe this to be one of my greatest strengths as it always helps me to churn out innovative and out of the box solutions to complex problems)

Last Year
GMAT - 690 (Q49, V35, AWA 6, IR 7)
IELTS - 7.5

Schools Applied to - 8
Interviewed at - 3
Accepted at - 2

Accepted Schools
1. Tippie College of Business, Univ of Iowa
2. Carlson School of Management, Univ of Minnesota

Reason for not joining this year
Insufficient funding (Seeking scholarship)

MBA Goal
Short Term - Seeking a consulting role in a Consulting Services Firm
Long Term - Rise to top management position in the Consulting Services domain

Plan of Action for this year
- Improving work profile - Switched to a Data Analytics company from an IT services company
- Retaking the GMAT - Seeking score beyond 720

Top Dream Schools
Kellogg, Emory, Oxford, Cornell, INSEAD

Please suggest some target and reach schools for my profile (assuming I will increase my GMAT score; as I shall not apply if I do not increase it).

Also let me know how you can help me perfect my applications if I choose to avail one of your packages.

Best Regards,
