Can you please provide me a short feedback on my profile?
Here is a brief on my profile:
Automotive Product Engineer - 6 yrs work at at matriculation. Worked with Robert Bosch Gmbh, afortune 100 and world's leading automotive company for 5 yrs and at a Harman Becker Automotive for over a year. Interacted with teams in Apple, BMW, Volvo, Ford and Aha Mobile. I am currently involved in the technical integration of a new company by Harman.
8 months of international work experience, and coordinating with teams across multiple time zones and mentoring a team of 4. sufficient leadership experiences One of the youngest members in the team, but shared the responsibilities that are typically done at a higher experience level of 7 years. Acted as a liaison between the teams in India and Germany.
GMAT - 710 ( 39V, 48Q 4.5 AWA )
GPA - 3.0 ( India Non IIT )

Post my MBA i look forward to work in the auto industry alhtough in a different role.

My Short term goal after an MBA is to enter into the general management in the automotive industry and formulate the strategies for business development of the auto companies in the BRIC countries.
In long term I look to rise to a senior management role like a cheif strategy officer in the auto company and help identify the next growth avenues for the company and push for auto industry consolidation

On the extra curricular I was associated with an NGO, teaching kids for 3 years and now I am establishing a CSR department in my new company. I will be the representative of my company to the NGO. I am also a member of the Net Impact and take care of the Net at Work initiatives of the chapter.
I have also presented many whitepapers and presentations on business strategy of auto companies in China and India
I will be a re applicant to Tuck & Darden and plan to apply to Booth, Ross, Haas, McCombs.
Do you think I have a fair chance of making any to these schools? Do you think I should improve my GMAT score, given that my profile resembles to the ubiquitous Indian IT Male?
Thanks in advance for your feedback.

Thanks for posting. I think your GMAT is plenty good enough--as an Indian applicant, yes you are expected to have a good GMAT score, but getting an additional 10 or 20 points will not likely get you any more than marginal attention. Your score is great, that's all you need to demonstrate in that category. As for looking like the typical applicant, I would say you have much in your story that can be leveraged to stand out. Just the fact that you work in the automotive industry and have done so with some top fortune 50 companies should help you distinguish your candidacy. Running multi-national teams is great experience, so you should emphasize the value this experience will have in the classroom. I like that your post MBA vision ties very believably into what you have done so far as well. This is often a good recipe for getting an adcom to buy into your goals--they seem realistic. Since you're targeting the automotive industry, you are wise to consider Michigan and Haas. For reapplicant essays, jsut make sure you demonstrate significant changes in your experience, leadership, maturity or other key area. Let us know if we can help.
