I am an Indian. I scored a 710 (V38, Q49) in GMAT . Here is my profile.

Academics:
1. Undergrad - Btech (Electronics and Communication Engineering)- Gold Medalist. CGPA 9.64/10 equivalent to 96.4% overall and GPA = 4.

Before undergrad during school days
-Transformed from flunking a subject in every exam and being in the lower half of the class in terms of academics to topping the class and still a record holder for the maximum percentage achieved till date at that school.
-Won multiple awards and trophies from school as well.

Work ex: 27 months by December, 2018

1. Worked at India's biggest IT MNC for 9 months for a major US based pharmaceutical company. Won awards as a team and delivered a critical project alone within the first 2 months of joining the firm.

I left the job to join a high-risk US-based startup as a Marketing professional ( i had taken a minor Sales and Marketing course at the university apart from my engineering degree). Got promoted as the sales and marketing head of the company in 2 months. Handling the entire sales and marketing effort for all the child companies of the parent startup.

In order to boost our recruitment efforts and create an impact on the world, i started a venture within the startup and working as the CEO of the venture. We help people who can't afford an education or a professional degree from across the world start a career in tech by teaching them how to code for free. Currently, I manage a team of 10 developers and more than 50 people in the program from places such as Africa, Sri-Lanka, Unites States, India, Brazil, Bangladesh, Pakistan, France and many more.

Volunteering and community service:

I work as Volunteer for Art of Living. Organized multiple workshops at university and for elderly people helping them live a happier life through Yoga and meditation.
I also teach under-privileged children on weekends (Children of maids, garbage collectors, gatekeepers and such) who can't afford a quality education on their own.

What are my chances of getting in with a scholarship in the b-schools mentioned below?

1. Rotman, Canada
2. Schulich, Canada
3. ISB, India
4. Foster, USA
5. UBC, Canada

Any feedback on these schools or any more schools(outside this list) that you find suitable would be really great.

Hi Kumarabhishek07,

Happy to help! We like to break different aspects of the application into the following buckets to make everything clearer.

GMAT – You have got 710 score. This falls in the median range of the schools that you are targeting.

Work Experience – You have got a good and diverse work experience. It is important to not just reiterate the job profile that you have. It is imperative to showcase the achievements and the awesome things that you have done, the initiatives you have taken, the awards you have received etc. Highlight your work experience and portray the positive sides of the achievements that you have accomplished in the tasks you have handled.

Education – You have a very good academic record. Adcom will be impressed by your record. But then having a very good GPA and GMAT does not make sure that your application would be shortlisted. Keeping this in mind you need to focus on Essays also.

Extra Curricular – This section tells the ADCOM about your overall personality and helps them relate to a person instead of a resume. Make sure that you bring out your hobbies, voluntary work and achievements outside work in this area. You seem to have good extra-curricular activities. Make sure you bring them out effectively in your essays.

Essays: This is the section of the application that is in your control and typically carries a lot of weight in the final decision. You need to ensure that you chose the right stories for the questions asked and differentiate yourself from the rest not only in the stories but also in the way you present them. We have been working with students from the past 10 years and helping them get into their dream school by ensuring that they know what and how to write in the essays.

Getting a scholarship in the B-Schools depends on the overall performance which includes your academic, GMAT, Essays and Interview performance. So give your best and focus on your application part. Each school receives more than 1000 applications every year and you need to impress the Adcom as the potential candidate with leadership skills to get admit.

Cheers and good luck!
