30 year Indian Male
GMAT: 760 (51Q, 41V)
GPA: Undergraduate - 61.5% from a leading Indian Engineering school (non-IIT)
Post-grad - 2.7/4 from MICA, Asia's leading Communications school

Work Experience:
-Currently employed in a Strategy role by one of India's largest media networks, managing a team of 4 people. Promoted to the Senior Manager level in three months ago (July 2017).
-Was previous employed in a strategy role for one of India's leading General Entertainment Channels, the Indian arm of a multi-national American media giant

Extra-curricular's:
-Theatre - Director for grad college theatre group. Directed a two-hour, ticketed English play at the prestigious Natrani Theatre in Ahmedabad
-Writing - Founder of college magazine in undergrad. Have written numerous short stories and currently working on my first novel
-Headed the Media & PR verticals for the annual brand management festival at grad school.

Goals:
My career goal is to head the Asia Pacific business for a Tech/Media company such as Amazon, Netflix, Google etc.

Short term goal would be to work in the Strategy/Business Development/Partnerships team for such an organisation in UK/US.

Schools (no order):
Cambridge Judge
LBS
Wharton
Oxford Said
UCLA Anderson
NYU Stern

Questions - My GPA in both my undergrad and Masters is comparatively low, especially for an Indian student, but I do have an above-average GMAT. Compared to the average Indian applicant, my work experience is different, both in terms of role and industry, but with a strong presence of quant work and working closely with senior management. Also, I have a good extra-curricular record, although slightly tilted to the creative side and mostly during post-graduation.

Given the above, do I have a realistic chance at the schools I'm targetting? Should I be considering other schools given my profile?

Hi there -
Thanks for reaching out for a free evaluation. In lieu of writing a lengthy reply, I'd rather we connect via Skype/phone so we may have a real dialogue and you can ask me questions as I give you an assessment. Additionally, I will be able to offer you a much more robust assessment if I am able to ask you more questions. If doing a free consult via skype/phone interests you, please contact me directly at kathrynlucas@squareoneprep.com.

I look forward to hearing from and speaking with you soon. Thanks again for reaching out.
