Hi, apology in advance for the long post.

Kindly evaluate my profile.

Following are the details:

Work Experience:
I am an Indian IT male with 9+ years of experience in IT strategy consulting in an Indian Global Tech giant. I have worked directly with several directors, VPs and CIO of several F500 organisations.I have worked in 6 different counties ( India, US, Canada, UK, Switzerland and Germany) and currently based out of Toronto, Canada.

Gmat Score: 710 ( Q50 and V35)
Education: Bachelor in Technology (Computer Science) from a non IIT/NIT - Score 86%

Career Aspiration: I have been in consulting sector since last 5 years and I love everything about my job. However I want to make the move from IT strategy consulting to management consulting. I have very specific companies in mind. I aspire to work in MBB (McKinsey, BCG or Bain) or companies of similar stature.

Extra Circular :
I am an avid traveller and my job has also provided me opportunity to visit various countries around the globe
I was part of Toastmasters International for 4-5 years (2010 -2015) and participated in few national speech competitions.
I have hosted several corporate and cultural events in my organisation
I have also participated several corporate business quizzes (e.g Tata Crucible, Rotary Club, etc. ) and have been winner on couple of occasions

Start Up Experience:
1. I have founded an not-for-profit organisation in 2015 that provided platform to Scholars in India to publish their technical research paper. This venture got closed in June 2017 during financial constraints
2. Founded a Kulfi (Indian Dessert) factory which has been operating since last 7 years in my home town

I am looking for schools primarily in North America. As of now I have Ross, CBS, INSEAD (France) and IVEY (Canada) in mind.

I am looking forward to suggestion regarding b-schools that suit my profile and will provide me an opportunity to pursue a career in management consulting.
Kindly suggest if 710 won't be competitive and I must retake considering my goals.

Cheers!

Thanks for sharing your profile. You have done a nice job selecting programs that align well with your career goals. You are a fringe candidate at most of the schools listed with some being more of an uphill battle than others. A higher GMAT score would really help you here so if you think you can steal a few more points, consider retaking. You are also coming from a very competitive applicant pool so you will need to find ways to stand out
