Amit--scholarships are exceedingly rare for MBA programs unless you are in the very top of the heap and many US schools have restrictions on scholarships for US citizens only. Further, since there are literally thousands of applicants with a profile similar to yours, the b-schools do not find it necessary to use scholarships and fellowships to boost the application pool. They are getting plenty of applicants without it. SCholarships generallly go to under-represented groups to help schools diversify the class a bit. Sorry to share that bad news. As for schools where it sounds like you would be a good fit, check out UNC Keenan Flagler, Kelley, Vanderbilt (Owen) and Emory. These schools are in the top 25 and stay a bit more off the radar for international applicants
(exception may be UNC, but they accept a lot of Indian Applicants). Also, get that GMAT squared away. Often clients are surprised when their actual scores come in below their practice tests, but it happens all the time. hope this helps.
