Hello ayushman1103

While your work ex and IIT brand helps, the 720 GMAT makes things a bit 'iffy' for the 'ambitious' schools. Keep in mind Indians (and more so IIT-ians) are among high scorers on GMAT.
At the same time in your written applicatin focus on the 6 admission factors mentioned here.
Coming to career goals not sure how your future goals tie in with your past experience. Showcase what transferable skills you have and what gaps you wish the MBA to fill.
You have the good in place, key here is execution now.

Hi Ayushman,

I agree with the view above that your GMAT score will not be competitive at the 'ambitious' programs you have listed. Its difficult for us to suggest b-schools to you because we don't know much about your profile at this point in time and we don't know what your goals are.

I'd like to point out that we have increasingly seen a number of entrepreneurs applying to b-schools. Every third person we talk to has dabbled in some form of entrepreneurship. An entrepreneurial profile that used to be niche until a few years ago has become pretty mainstream now in the MBA circuit. I am not trying to discourage you but I am merely pointing out that you need to submit a super solid application in order to make it into your target programs.

And if you are aiming at the higher ranked b-schools as you have mentioned, go for them, but apply with a better GMAt score.
