Hi Experts,
I"ll appreciate any suggestions on my choice of universities with the kind of profile I have.

GMAT: 640 (Q-47, V-32, AWA-5.5)
Job Exp: 4.5yrs
GPA: 3.5
Indian Female, 25yrs

My industry experience has been in IT (ERP-SAP) for about 3 yrs and Sales & Marketing for SAP for another 1.5yrs. I have handled various US assignments from the client's location and my major area of expertise is in Oil & Gas sector and Supply Chain Management.
I intend to pursue my MBA in the Operations & Logistics and/or Sales and Marketing. My choice of universities are the ones which offer both the courses or in someway offer electives for each of these. I am planning to send my MBA application packets latest by Nov 15th to each of the following univs:
1. University of Toronto - Rotman School of Management
2. Texas A&M University - Mays School of Business
3. UBC - Sauder School of Business
4. Rice University - Jesse Jones SOM
5. UT Dallas - SOM
6. Arizona State University - Carrey
Please advise on my choice of schools and some others which I can consider. I am apprehensive about my low score.. Please suggest.

It's not all about the scores, and being a woman and an international applicant, you offer diversity that the average applicant cannot. True that there are plenty of Indian applicants with IT backgrounds applying to b-school, but not necessarily to the schools you are listing. Ask yourself how you stand out amongst your peers who may be applying from a similar background and highlight these distinctions in your essays. 640 is a very respectable GMAT, so don't lose heart. It's likely well within the 80 percent range for most of the schools you listed as your targets.
