Thanks for sharing your profile. I really like your background and the diversity of your work experience. However, you will need to make sure you are tying together your career progression and why you made each stop. Some real nice name son your resume! Your GMAT and GPA are low for the top schools which are about at 3.6/730 respectively but I think schools like Ross and maybe Duke might be in range but top 15 is probably your sweet spot. I would recommend seeing if you can drag that GMAT score a bit higher, you've had quite the improvement across your three test scores so see if there are any more points for you to get to help pull up your low GPA

Hard to ever know why you are not admitted to a particular school. Booth is one of the top schools in the world so with your low GPA, I can see why your application may not have made the cut. Emory and UNC are more in range but keep in mind there tend to be very few spots left in R3, especially for Indian applicants so you may be fighting an uphill battle. Be patient and wait for your results and then re-evaluate your MBA gameplan
