Can someone please comment on my profile?

Standard Indian male working in the IT industry
Age: 26 soon kicking out 25 :(

1. GMAT - 630 (first attempt) - Q44, V33
2. Graduated Undergrad with First Class and a GPA of 8.24/10 (Information Technology and Management)
3. School GPA - 88% both in 10th (CBSE) and 12th 90.4(Andhra Pradesh State Board,India)

1. Technology Analyst at a IT service provider company(Infosys) since July,2009 (4.7) years of work experience.
2. Providing services in the business intelligence area for the hi-tech industry in the US(Hitachi Data Systems(HDS) and Apple)
3. Worked on the Sales and Channels area of HDS and Apple Online Sales and Service area for Apple developing reporting dashboards for the clients.
4. Short term goal: To be a consultant for a top tier product based technology company, or venture into product management.
5. Long term goal: To be a consultant in the top 4 / to be responsible for the end-to-end management of a well recognized product.

1. Was active in games during school and college, interested even now. Play Table Tennis and Tennis.
2. Deeply passionate about the technological innovations in the world. Keep myself updated with them.

Do I stand a chance in one of the 20 to 40 ranked colleges in the US? I am open to colleges in western Europe and Asia too. I am short of time with R2 closing out in most colleges.
Should I give another attempt in a month and apply for R3? Or else, should I wait and apply for the next year?(would not prefer this, now who would like to wait so long! )

Please advise.

I don't think you would be able to get into a top 20-40 US college in a 630 especially the Indian Male IT profile. This is the most competitive profile of all. I would suggest that you consult a counsellor in your area and discuss the strategy with him.

R2 is more competitive than R1. So it is advisable to apply next year. Till then, you can give another shot at the GMAT and may be get a good score.

Best of luck.
