picasso,

Your leadership record, given your age, is impressive. You can optimistic about Case Western, Katz, and Babson. You will be competitive at UIUC, Smeal, Fisher, ASU Carey, Krannert, Maryland-Smith, and TAMU. Given your goals, I think you should also consider Michigan State; I think you have a chance there.

Best of luck,

Thanks pbodine for your inputs.
I did correspond with michigan state(as you suggested) as its SCM curriculum is very highly reputed but in the response they very explicitly mentioned that international students score considerably higher on the GMAT than their class average(640). Also, I would have less number of years of work ex(almost 3yrs) than the class avg(5 yrs).

So these are the two factors I weighed before deciding to drop michigan state from the above list.
Given my profile and the schools I am aiming for do you think that I have a chance to get some sort of scholarship from any of the schools?

picasso,

Yes, I do. Financial aid is not my expertise, but if you apply to enough programs where your numbers/profile are significantly better than their averages, your odds of getting a scholarship should go up.

Good luck,
