Hi mayurlohia,

Thanks for posting. The biggest challenges you will face are demonstrating your leadership experience and differentiating yourself from a competitive candidate pool. Your GMAT score is strong, but top MBA programs will look beyond the numbers as well. I recommend you read this case study of an Indian engineer who was accepted into Columbia, Tuck, and MIT: ... ies/case2/

It should provide some insight. We also provide more case studies here:

Hope this was of help.
