My test results were in similar range . I used Kaplan test and GMAt offical test. I scored max 690 in mock. If you consistent in getting 700 or 680 in GMAt offical ( not repeated questions) and/or kaplan .. you would get similar results.

My experience is 12 years but I have experience working in India , Ireland and US so that is edge over my experience. I agree that average students are with 4 to 5 experience but they do pick some students with 10 + experience

If you are interested in school like I was in Kellogg and Tepper , I did lot of networking. Attend their events , ask questions that you need to know , connect with alumni or current students . Networking has helped me a lot in understanding what schools want in students and that helps in interviews as well

Congrats Ekta for your achievement. Did you attend the course as full-time MBA or part-time? If it was part-time, how did you manage your work with the studies?
