Hi,

I am a little lost here after speaking to my friends so thought I could ask here.
I have gpa of 8.8/10 (computer science engineering) from a good engineering college in India
GMAT - 650
retake as well got the same so not planning another one .
Total exp: 6 years (approx.)
I have 2 years and 8 months of experience as a consultant partner for exchange at Microsoft
and then as a director (3 years 5 months)in a real estate firm which my family owns. Here I have been in management , planning, mostly customer satisfaction division.
Associated with an NGO which is in our office premise. Here we run a school for the kids of unskilled tribal population which works at our construction site. Our project employs tribal population and my long term goals are also associated with employing tribal population more of empowering them.

I don't know if I can aim for a full time MBA in marketing and strategy in these schools- Fuqua (Duke), Tepper (CMU), HEC Paris, McCombs, Cornell, kelley, Marshall, NUS. If I could get an idea as to what schools I should apply to with the above profile.



Awaiting your precious feedback and comments

Hey there,
Well I hope you won't mind a direct answer:

With a 650, none of these schools will be options for you as an Indian applicant.

So essentially I think you need to make a choice:

1. Despite your retake, retake again until you get a higher score that will allow you to apply to above schools.
2. Accept your current score, and apply father down in the rankings.

To give you a small idea of just how tough and how competitive things can get for Indian applicants with low GMATs, I'd like to point out these two articles:

Let us know your thoughts!
