Dear Sir,
Very good to hear from you!

So first and foremost I would like to say that without an actual GMAT it can be hard to make a profile evaluation. For the purposes of this one, I will assume a 700 GMAT which you say you have been mocking.

So I'm afraid that with your current GMAT and profile, most of the schools you mentioned will be out of range. Only Foster is a realistic option for you.

Why? There are many weaknesses in your profile that will make top 15 schools very tough:
- Low GMAT (if it's a 700)
- Low GPA
- Non IIT
- The toughest applicant pool in the universe (Indian/Male/Tech)
- Non top employer

So all in all, I think a more realistic range would be in the 15-30/40 range (with a 700). I would suggest looking further into schools that appeal to you within this range.

Best,
Jon

Thanks Jon,

Appreciate the candid evaluation.

As suggested, I will try to bump up my GMAT and am already looking into more schools (Sloan, Ross are sort of my dream schools)

Are there any specific schools you think I could target, given my profile.

Hey there,
So if you are going to apply with a 700, I would say your range would be somewhere in the 15-40 range. I would start looking into those schools so you can begin to earmark which ones would be of interest to you personally, but don't go tooooo deep, because really your GMAT score will be quite decisive, and then the real decisions you will be able to make at that point.

I wish you best of luck!
And just drop a line with your real score, and we can move from there.

Best,
Jon
