Hi Hari,

Thanks for posting your profile. Are you applying now/asap, or thinking next year? Your GMAT and grades are solid, and I like hearing about your progression and increasing responsibilities and exposure to various components of the business... but you will still be coming from a very competitive applicant pool of Indian IT male engineers and those with technical strengths... the more you can showcase your 'softer' skills, interpersonal skills, leadership, and impact made... the more you have the potential to stand out from that crowd. Community involvement can also be a way to do that. So I do feel your current school list is a bit of a reach... Cornell may be the closest to reasonable, and you may wish to look at schools ranked (roughly) 12-25 or so on US News for some higher chances too. Good luck, keep us posted!
