Background: 24 year old male from India.

GMAT: 730 (Q50,V38). Gave it yesterday so still waiting for the AWA+IR scores.

College: Bachelor of Engineering(Computers) from University of Pune, India. Graduated in 2010 with an aggregate of 62.6%. This may seem low but considering our university gave a distinction at 66% (as compared to 75% in other Indian universities) it is an average score.

Work Experience: 24 months as on today. Working as a Consultant in one of the Big 4 professional services firms. My work is mostly related to Identity and Access management. We assess and implement Identity Management solutions. In my two years, I have worked on Fortune 500 clients from the US. Implemented almost one half of a multi milion dollar project(for which I was given an award.) Led a team of 2 people(both Consultants themselves) in the project mentioned above. Apart from client work, I have participated in practice development activities as well

1. I have participated in quite a few extra curricular events in college related to Dramatics, Music, Improv and Quiz.
2. I was the vocalist of the college band.
3. Formed the official office band in my new office location.
4. In charge of managing a few events in the intra college cultural festival.
5. Organized the music segment of our annual office function.

Target Schools: ISB(Hyderabad, India), Ross, Tepper, Kellogg, National University of Singapore, Nanyang Business School, UCLA Anderson

Post MBA Goal: After an MBA I want to get into strategy consulting. Aiming to get into

1. I need to know if my school selection is appropriate considering my profile (and the fact that my work experience is a bit low). Also, please suggest any other schools in the US that I can aim for.
2. Is it true that maximum scholarships are awarded in the first round of applications. Scholarships are very important to me and they would be a very important factor in my decision.

First thing's first--scholarships usually go in first round as you indicate, so don't delay! As for your profile, I think the risk is in the light Work experience, but the good news is, you have real leadership expereince, project management and international work with major firms. This kind of "mileage" will help make up for the lack of "age" on the profile. Your academic marks seem low, but the GMAT should help assuage any concerns there. I think your target schools are within reach. Your post MBA goals are achievable with any good school, so no worries there.
