At last I could touch the figure that I was looking for.. BUT after 3 Years.. 700 (Q49,V37) - 90%;

Though I am not very happy but surely not sad for the score. I will post my GMAT Saga in couple of days.

I am aiming at top schools( Wharton, Kellog, Harvard, MIT, Insead, ISB and IIM) and not sure whether MY Score is good enough.

I am quite aged..35+ and am from the most competetive lot (IT).I did my masters in Engineering from a reputed Institute in India. My acads have been reasonably good all thru.

I have around 12 years of experience in IT and worked in 4 continents for almost 10 years. I can speak 5 languages and have managed more than 1000 people. I have good mix of Client Relationship Mgmt, Delivery and Sales experience.

Please advise whether I am targetting right schools. Any thoughts on my chances?

Cheers.

Before the veterans chime in to make school suggestions, I just wanted to say you have an amazing profile.

Due to your age, you'd probably be a better fit for an EMBA program.
