I wish to apply for the elite masters in management programs, which require no work experience.

My profile:

Age - 21
Nationality - Indian
Undergrad - Bachelors in Management Studies from Mumbai University. Graduated with 82% aggregate score - top 1% of class.
Work Experience - 2 internships of 2 months each, at startups.
GMAT - 670 Q48 V35 (Was expecting 720-730)

Others- Ample amount of team work experience.
Core committee member of the organizing committees of 3 different events of my college for 3 successive years.

I feel that my stint at the startup and my experience with the events was really amazing and I can effectively market them through my essays.

I plan to apply for LBS MiM, Duke MMS, LSE MiM-CEMS and St.Gallen MA.SIM. Are my chances still dim, considering that these programs are difficult to get into, as far as I have heard ? Do I need to retake the GMAT ?

As per their websites my GMAT score is a tad more than the average/median scores. I was targeting a scholarship but that seems next to impossible now. Do you think my chances of admission are dim ?

Didn't want you to wait on a response, but I am unable to field non-MBA questions in depth at this time, due the time of the year. I would think you would want to retake the GMAT though, especially since WE is not going to be something that can dramatically offset raw numbers. Most top Masters programs look hard at the numbers game, both for profile reasons (they want high averages) and also because academic success is a larger part of the puzzle than professional success.

Hope that helps a bit - sorry I can't spend more time on this.

Respectfully,

Paul Lanzillotti
