Thank you in advance for taking out the time to evaluate my profile. I am sharing below my background so you can
i) evaluate my profile,
ii) identify strong areas and improvement areas (and subsequently how to address them)

a) Work Experience: I have 78 months of work experience in the IT and Consulting area. I currently work for one of the Big 3 IT and Consultancy company. I currently work as a project lead for a 7 member team and has been promoted twice in the organization.

b) International Work Experience: 10 months of consultancy and lead experience for a leading insurance client in U.S for a million dollar project.

c) GMAT: 660 (Q: 47, V:34)

d) Education:
I have
-a Bachelors in Computer Science Engineering with a GPA of around 3 to 3.2 with a first class with distinction
- Two technology certifications

e) Activities outside Profession:
- I have been an active organizing volunteer for the CSR wing of my organization and college for which I actively teach for school kids

Also please answer my question about my international exposure?. Is the exposure good enough for the target schools?. I may get an opportunity to work in U.S again as a consultant. can you please let me know whether working as a proj lead at offshore / as a consultant at onsite will improve my chances?.

Yes, getting experience outside of your home country is critical, especially in recent years, but you might also consider retaking the GMAT. A 660 is going to put you in a difficult bracket, where you might get sort of "screened out," meaning you won't get a full and fair read of your file. When that happens, it doesn't matter how great your content (goals, transferable skills, understanding of school DNA, key b-school traits, etc.) is - they aren't reading it.

I'm not sure how many times you have taken it or if you feel you can score higher, but I believe it will be important - at least for top 20 US programs.
