Hi there,

Thanks for your request. So I have to be honest that I don't exactly understand what the numbers / percents at the top of your profile mean; so my evaluation will not include that part. Was this your undergrad and masters rank perhaps? Either way, here are a few thoughts for you - hope this helps!
- Re: GMAT score, if you want to apply to a top 10 US school (our firm's specialty), then as an Indian applicant you want to aim for 740+
- I can't see how long you've been working, but your career progression looks impressive! This will be helpful for you for sure. Be sure to highlight your management experience as this can serve to differentiate you.
- The breadth of your projects will definitely help to differentiate you too; however, focus on the leadership aspects versus the technical aspects (eg. your technical certifications are not going to be the highlight of your application - instead the real focus will be on how you've managed some of these projects, working with different types of teams and people etc).
- I love your extracurriculars! As you know, Indian applicants are competing in a very competitive pool. As such, it's important to differentiate yourself along other dimensions, like your interests outside of work / school. The classical dancing is really interesting. I had an Indian applicant just last year who had a fairly standard profile but focused on discussing her background as a dancer, and I think it made all the difference.

Hope this helps and best of luck to you!

Thanks for taking out time for evaluating my profile :-D

Few points:-

1)On the acads front,my board exam marks are 89.8% (10th standard) and 92.5%(12th standard).
My graduation percentage is 85%(I completed my engineering in Computer Science and Engineering with a CGPA of 9.04).
I have not done masters yet.

2)I have a work experience of more than 29 months.

3)My active extracurriculars include classical dancing and food blogging.I have passed all the exams with flying colors.
Apart from that,I am a restaurant reviewer as well.

The other important point which I forgot to mention was that I worked as an ERP consultant for all Microsoft based ERPs in a practice different from mine where I had to arrange and take scrum calls with the entire analytics team(which was a different practice altogether!).

Great! Then it sounds like for sure your leadership experience at work will differentiate you as well as your extracurriculars. 29 months of work experiences is on the lower-end, but not an issue if you can demonstrate strong leadership experience and career progression (which it sounds like you can). Again, aim for a high GMAT, focus on what makes you different from other Indian applicants, and I think you should be in the running!
