Hi everyone,

Kindly evaluate my profile and let me know if my profile is suitable for the schools I'm applying to.

1. Profile : Indian / 25 years / Mechanical engineer
2. Work Experience : 4 year. Currently employed with Daikin (Japanese MNC) as a Sr. Engineer-Project management and leading a team of 6 people to manage 50+ dealer/distributors each having a staff of 10+ engineers.
Associated with 2 Green building projects. Have been promoted once in 1.5 years in my current company.
Previous employer : SEIPL
Was amongst the top 3 employees during the one month training organized by Company. As a result was transferred to the corporate office to be a part of technically most demanding and company's most profitable division, Clean room application of air conditioners(worked for multinationals like Ranbaxy, USV etc)
Promoted once during my stay in SEIPL
3. GMAT score : 710 (Verbal - 35 , Quant - 50 , IR 7)
4. TOEFL scores : awaited
5. Percentage :71.4% (Hold a B.E Honor from Panjab University. Honors degree is generally awarded to only 5-6% of the students in our university)
6. Extra Curricular : President of a club, head of mechanical wing of another during college.
7.Achievements : Stood first in state in National Science Olympiad. Represented state in a national level quiz contest
Social work - Active Member of a NGO

I want to start applying in the early rounds.
Does being a Non IT engineer put me at some advantage(compared to IT guys) or all Indian engineers are considered as same ..

Your GMAT score is above average. Though your GPA is low, but being in the top 5-6% of the university would certainly help.
Your work experience seems to be good. Having a fast-paced growth in the company one is associated with really helps. This seems to be your star selling point. Highlight the leadership opportunities you got in the organization, and the results achieved by you for your employers. You could write a lot about it in your application essays. Did you win any awards or recognition for your performance.
Your extracurricular activities don't shine that much. You have hold good positions, but it would not matter unless you have achieved results with it. You should elaborate in your application essays about what you did as president of the club. Were you able to increase membership or won awards?
I think, being a non-IT guy from India puts you at advantage, and puts you in less competitive pool. You could apply to some of the top 20 business schools.

Good Luck!
