Please guide me how can I improve my profile. I plan to apply for R2 of 2013 Fall and R1 of 2014 Spring.
I am short of time as I have to get done with my GMAT soon and at the same time start my application process.
Please suggest in what all good Universities can I apply. Along with Good US universities, I also plan to apply for NUS and NTU in Singapore.

Hey Shipali,
You wrote sooo much about your extra curriculars, but sooooo little about your work experience, which is actually far more important.

So maybe you can write a bit more about what you do, your promotions etc....

Also, given what you have written, it's hard to say what your chances are without having a real GMAT. 500 is pretty low, and you need to see what you will get before taking your decision about whether to apply. If you have less than 650-660, I would say wait another year.

If you have any other questions, don't hesitate.
