Can you please provide me a short feedback on my profile?
Here is a brief on my profile:
Automotive Product Engineer - 7 yrs work at at matriculation. Worked with Robert Bosch Gmbh, a

fortune 100 and world's leading automotive company for 5 yrs and at a Harman Becker Automotive for over a year and half. 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 although in a different role.

My Short term goal after an MBA is to enter into the product management / operations 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 chief 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 plan to apply to UCLA, Ross, Haas, McCombs, USC Marshall, Rotman

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?

Can somebody also evaluate US vs Canada scenario, given the fact that canada is much friendly in terms post employment prospects for international students.

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

Well first of all the good news - Given your international collaborations and your industry you are already NOT the "ubiquitous Indian male". You could have been, but thankfully you chose your industry wisely. Plus you have a look of good collaborations with super famous firms which will help you a lot.

One thing that wasn't entirely clear is WHERE you work now (India Germany) and whether you have work experience abroad. (it will help if you do). I think given your proposed schools, a 710 would be enough, and you can concentrate your efforts on the other aspects of your application, mostly your essays and recommendations and resume.

If you have a bit of good extra currics and volunteerwork it will also help.
