Hey dude,
Good to hear from you!
Well you have some good stuff in there: working in finance, work aboard in Japan, and Japanese language proficiency which should all make you more competitive. You also have a great TOEFL. A big decisive factor here could be the GMAT. If you can hit a 740, it could be a game-changer for you.

That having been said from your list, I think LBS might be a bit out of range (but if its your one dream school, it's good). You could also look into INSEAD. And really given your Japanese proficiency, you may want to focus down on Asian schools which might let you exploit that a bit better, so CEIBS and NUS as well, for example...


I hope this helps!
Best,
Jon Frank

Hello Kunal,

Very nice profile and as rightly pointed out, a score of 720+ can do wonders. What can practically guarantee you a spot in one of the top schools is a well crafted story line.

LBS might be a tough play for you. The rest should be in play, but I would try and steal some more points on the GMAT. That would really help your case with other programs which you feel like a solid fit for if you can hit those GMAT targets.
