Hey Amar - welcome to GMAT Club, and congrats on that spiffy score!! A 770 can certainly open doors for you. However, that 2.6 GPA is really really low - and we're not sure where you've gotten that number. Most schools in India don't report on the 4.0 scale. Did you get your grades officially converted by WES? Where did you come up with the 2.6? We'd need to know that before we could proceed - a 770 GMAT is great but that GPA is very very low and it could have a real impact on outcomes if it's an accurate conversion. We have a bunch of posts on the EssaySnark blagh about low GPA if in fact that's the case for you - here's one to start with.

We just answered a somewhat similar question fromsomeone else asking the "which schools?" question here - you might want to check that out since we linked to resources that could be useful for you.

The bottom line though is that apps are evaluated holistically by the schools and so we can't say which ones you'd have a reasonable shot at unless we knew a lot more about you - and we can't suggest schools very easily since we don't know you and don't know what your priorities are. But we've got some suggestions in that other thread for where you can dig in with your research, and we would be happy to help with specific questions too if you've got them.
