Arpitkumar even though Indians are very overresented in general you do have the work diversity on your side and so that is interesting. I like everything but it's unfortunate you don't have any community service.

The grades are kind of marginal I do hope that you strive to get a great score on the GMAT. Unfortunately for your profile group you can't really skate by on this it has to be good meaning 20 points over the average for the last incoming class.

I would really urge you to consider applying to LBS, HEC and bacione. Schools with luxury management programs, recruitment. As an FYI you could apply to LBS and make it a one-year program it's customizable.
