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

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

710 GMAT is indeed a good score considering your work experience, academics, your community work etc has made your profile strong enough to apply for listed B-schools. Having a strong profile cannot guarantee you getting an admit or interview invite, the way you craft your essays putting the things in the right manner, using appropriate words etc is also important. You should show case your achievements which you have received during the tenure of your career, your leadership qualities which is one of the most feature that most top schools look into an applicant.

You will have to show them that you are the right candidate for their upcoming class and essays is the place to prove yourself. Working with an expert can help you in crafting your essays to stand out competitive and getting an positive response from listed schools.

You also stand chance with listed down few schools.

Columbia Business School - US
NYU Stern School of Business - US
McGill University - Canada
Duke University - US
