Hi I am new to gmatclub, I hope this is the right forum/subforum for my question, if not, kindly move it to the right forum.

Please review my profile, as I'm not sure if it's realistic for me to clear the admissions process for the schools I want to attend.

My Profile
31 y.o. Indian

GMAT Scores: Will attempt in September 18. Scores on the GMAT practice tests have ranged between 710-740.

5.5 Years experience in banking (financing infrastructure projects, primarily roads and power sector).

B.Tech (Electronics) - 58%
Post Graduate Programme in Banking and Finance - CGPA 8

Favorite Schools (not in order)
1. HEC Paris
2. UCLA Anderson
3. Wharton
4. Hong Kong UST
5. Duke Fuqua

Post MBA I would like to continue in the field of banking.

Does it make sense for me to apply to those schools? Which of these are totally unrealistic? I would also appreciate if you could point out some other schools which might be suitable considering my background.

Thanks in advance. Please let me know if any additional information is required. I would be more than happy to share the same.

Hello prashant17p

A profile is made up of factors mentioned here.
Do you have a break in your career, at 31 with 5 years experience- let me know if I am missing something.
While your work ex and expected GMAT sores look decent, there is much 'qualitative' info that is missing.
Career progression, achievements at work, impact in extracurricular all these make up for a holistic profile.
More importantly the career goals should fit your profile and that of the B school's. In your case not sure what specific goals you have (banking is too broad), what transferable skills you have and why do you need an MBA to reach your goals. See if reading here helps.
Your chances would depend on all of these and thus suggesting whether a school is reachable or not is quite tough here. Purely based on the score, Wharton might be a challenge, but that is not telling the whole story.
