Hi Experts,

So after applying to 5 Canadian universities with a not so bad 650 in gmat, 2 years of entrepreneur experience and eventually getting dinged, I am here again asking for help. The only university I am awaiting a response from is University of Alberta in which my application status is still under review from past 1 month.

My profile
Indian, 26 years old
Commerce background.
1st division in class 12th, 1st division in graduation.
I have worked 2 years at The Royal Bank of Scotland and I have my own start up now in education industry.

I applied to McGill, Sauders, Schulich, Mcmaster, and Alberta. Got interview invites from Mcmaster and Schulich and got rejected after interviews. The only feedback I got is this year was highly competitive. So if one were to ask me what I have learnt from my experience, I would not have much to tell.
I have improved my gmat score from an initial score of 230. So, i am willing to rise from the ashes again.

But before I move forward I am in need of your expert advise. I am not able to figure out things:-

1. What can I improve in my profile before I apply again for next year intake? The only thing I have in control is my gmat score, but my gmat was above the average for some university such as Mcmaster so im not sure whether a better gmat score would make any difference?
2. Should I apply to same universities again?
3. How will I be able to write my essays differently, given my reason and motivation for doing MBA are pretty much still the same?

I will be thankful if you could help me figure out this jigsaw somewhat. Looking forward to hear from you.

Also, if anyone has experienced the same situation in the past, please connect with me.

Thanks and Regards
