Dear Expert,
First of all, Thanks a ton for taking out your precious time to reviewing my profile. Following are the details:

1. NAME: BHARDWAJH K.M.

2. COUNTRY: INDIA

3. GMAT SCORE: 790 (Q51, V50, AWA 6)

4. SCHOOL: BITS Pilani, India (2011-2016). B.Engg(Hons.) in ELECTRICAL & ELECTRONICS ENGINEERING, MSc.(Hons.) in BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES.

5. CUMULATIVE G.P.A.: 7/10 (70 %, or 2.8/4)

6. WORK EXPERIENCE:
a.) JP Morgan Chase & Co.- (August 2016-July 2017) Corporate and Investment Bank Technology. Worked with a team of 9 as a Technology Analyst on Investment Banking Automation for JP Morgan's Clients for North American, European and Asia Pacific Region. Delivered 4 different projects, each related to different investment funds in 11 months.
b.) PricewaterhouseCoopers.- (July 2017 onwards) Working on GRID (Government Reforms and Infrastructure Development) as an Advisory Consultant team that comprises of experts from Science, Technology, Marketing and Finance in the Renewable Energy sector to ensure a sustainable growth of Renewable Energy resources in an energy deficient but a high energy consuming country such as India.

7. EXTRA CURRICULAR AND VOLUNTEERING ACTIVITIES:
a.) MEMBER: Literary and Debating Club, Electronics and Robotics Club, Festival Committee, Music Society, Philately and Numismatics Club.
b.) FOUNDER: Hindi Literary and Debating Club (A 400% increase in membership in just 2 years with over 50 events), SARAS (Society for Rejuvenation and Appreciation of Sanskrit. We've been active across universities in India and abroad with the help of the massive Indian diaspora within our network. Although started just a few months ago, we are a family of 101 highly motivated Sanskrit Enthusiasts and are planning to launch our Social Media handles across various platforms the next month. ), MARUDHARA, BITS Pilani Rajasthan State Association(Have been the Treasurer and Chief Coordinator for straight two years. A big group of around 500 students from the state of Rajasthan. To pay heed to their matters of concern, for regular meeting and activities this group was founded.)
c.) VOLUNTEER: ISKCON (International Society For Krishna Consciousness, Marketing Volunteer), Helpage India, Help for the ederly (Student Volunteer), Nirmaan (N.G.O. for the underprivileged, Marketing Volunteer)

8. ANY SIGNIFICANT CONFERENCE SELECTED FOR AND ATTENDED TO: HPAIR (Harvard Project for Asian and International Relations) 2014 TOKYO

Now, after your thorough prognosis and diagnosis, kindly answer these questions of mine:
1.) Is there even a remote possibility of me getting any of the top 5 college (Rank according to FT) ?
2.) Should I be too worried for my low CGPA. and is there anything that I can do to compensate it now ?
3.) When, according to you is the right time for me to apply ?
4.) MBA from US or MIM from Europe? Please note that I come from an Indian lower middle class family, so I need to be extremely sure about the decision that I make and the Return on Investment. The MBA fees of top US colleges is like my father's 15 years of net salary, that too when I assume that he was getting the same amount in 2002 as in 2017.

You have stellar GMAT score and the extracurricular also good. But the work experience is less than 2 years. Most top B-schools average work experience is around 4-5 years.

Since GMAT is out of the way. I would suggest you focus on building your strong work experience in the Pwcand leadership skills at work. You can apply for 2019 intake if you like but since you will only 3 years of experience I'm not sure how it will work out. Also, work on your goals, which is really important while applying to B-schools.

All the best!

There are also a lot of admission consultants who give free 30 minutes profile evaluations. You can find that on the forum and connect with them if you need a detailed review of your profile.

impressive!
4. SCHOOL: BITS Pilani, India (2011-2016). B.Engg(Hons.) in ELECTRICAL & ELECTRONICS ENGINEERING, MSc.(Hons.) in BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES.

5. CUMULATIVE G.P.A.: 7/10 (70 %, or 2.8/4)
There are two bright spots on this-- 1) your GMAT score trumps and 2) international gpas can sometimes fly a little bit under the radar so that might help a little
6. WORK EXPERIENCE:
a.) JP Morgan Chase & Co.- (August 2016-July 2017) Corporate and Investment Bank Technology. Worked with a team of 9 as a Technology Analyst on Investment Banking Automation for JP Morgan's Clients for North American, European and Asia Pacific Region.

good job describing impact in the extracurriculars
8. ANY SIGNIFICANT CONFERENCE SELECTED FOR AND ATTENDED TO: HPAIR (Harvard Project for Asian and International Relations) 2014 TOKYO

Now, after your thorough prognosis and diagnosis, kindly answer these questions of mine:
1.) Is there even a remote possibility of me getting any of the top 5 college (Rank according to FT) ? I had a client that was successful getting into top 10- 20 with similar work experience
2.) Should I be too worried for my low CGPA. and is there anything that I can do to compensate it now ? We have a program called early edge where we can work with you NOW to suggest ways to help improve-- to do that reach out to us at this link https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... b-visitor/ some general ideas would come from looking at your transcript to see what quant classes you had and how you did and suggest some to take where you can get an A. We would also discuss the best way to provide context for your grades
3.) When, according to you is the right time for me to apply ? see above- for link to Stratus-- but if you work with us now on 4 schools you have no downside to applying this upcoming year. As if you are not successful you can work with us again in a subsequent year at no extra cost. That might be a great way to go-- you are on low side of work now-- but I have seen candidates with good horsepower-- GMAT get some good outcomes on shorter work so I think you do have something special to bring to this
4.) MBA from US or MIM from Europe? Please note that I come from an Indian lower middle class family, so I need to be extremely sure about the decision that I make and the Return on Investment. The MBA fees of top US colleges is like my father's 15 years of net salary, that too when I assume that he was getting the same amount in 2002 as in 2017.
We could help you with a scholarship strategy-- there are options for getting scholarships with that kind of GMAT! If you want to know more-- reach out to us at this link: https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... b-visitor/

Hi Bhardwajh5x ,

First of all, congrats on the amazing score. A GMAT score of 790 should never have a sad face attached to it!

Do you have your ESR yet? Recent ESR research on GMAT Club suggests that you answered 100% of counted questions correctly on Verbal, and 0-2 counted questions incorrectly on Quant.
