Your overall profile is a good fit for Olin.
However your GMAT score might be a hurdle. We had the median this year around 700 I believe( look up stats on the Olin website).
630 is below the GMAT range that we have. I would advice to try for a higher score - take some time and prepare.
Also, talking to admissions office might be helpful. I can't drop names here but you can find contacts online.
Hope this helps.

Kruti,it seems you are applying to Schulich but towards the end you've asked about Olin. I would agree with the above post that your gmat is on the lower side. Try taking the GRE if you are finding GMAT difficult to crack. I applied using my GRE score which was much higher than my GMAT.
Overall your profile looks good. I think a stellar test score will help you further.

Thanks,
Shreeraj

Hope this does not reach you too late.
If you start asking Indian Students about your GMAT score, you will go home pretty depressed.

DO NOT worry about GMAT score (unless you are determined to increase it). Your story will be more challenging. Your profile is very generic as compared to all Indians applying.
If you shy away from that and build a good story, I am sure you will get into Olin.

I have an Indian friend who graduated from Olin and had a much lower GMAT score as compared to yours. She is working in Amazon now.
