Hi Stacey,

Below is my brief profile:

Nationality: Indian
Gender: Male
Age: 26 years

Undergrad: Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee (2008 batch), CGPA: 6.5 / 10 (relative grading, still not particularly good)
FRM (both levels)
Passed CFA Level - 1

GMAT: 700 (Q50, V34) and AWA: 4.5
Work ex 1: Marketing analytics KPO (2 years)
Work ex 2: Financial Management, Shared Services and Outsourcing Advisory (Process Consulting) with KPMG Management Consulting
International work ex: None, however have extensively worked with US and European clients / colleagues

Total work ex by Aug'13: 5 years and 1 months (expected)
Extra curricular: Nothing major after graduation. Did a lot of stuff during the college, for example, was the General Secretary of the elected students body. Involved in managing technical festivals etc.

Major reason for MBA: Get into the finance domain (corp. finance, I - banking etc.) with direct client exposure (I have worked in an offshore model for a few years now)

I have 2 major questions:

1. I plan to target the major schools in the ASPAC region (HKUST, NUS, ISB, NTU, HKU, probably INSEAD and Melbourne Business School as well) along - with a few good US schools (top 25 global rank and total cost less than $ 75,000). Kindly suggest some good US schools where the total expense would be lower than $ 75,000 or I can get a decent scholarship so that it reduces below $ 75,000. Probably a few 'generous' (in terms of scholarship) US schools would be a good target for me

2. Please point out a few pros and cons (I believe lack of international experience and extra - curricular might be a couple of cons) and areas that should focus on in my essay, in light of the schools that I wish to apply for (both the ASPAC ones as well as the US ones)

Many thanks in advance!!!!
