Hi MBAaspirant1993,

Thank you very much for your note. When do you plan to take the GMAT? There is a huge difference between having a 760 target score and getting 700s on your practice exams, both in terms of "target score" and "more likely reality" and how those results would impact your chances for admission at the schools you've referenced.

I would be happy to chat with you via a Free Consultation, which would allow for a more detailed and nuanced conversation. That conversation would be more productive once you know your actual GMAT score. 700 on practice exams and a 760 target are two wildly different scenarios. So if you're taking the exam in the coming weeks or months, then we should chat after you know your score. You can sign up for a Free Consultation via this link:

For a detailed analysis of how Indian applicants have fared in recent years (from various professional backgrounds, years of experience, and GMAT scores), I recommend reading this fantastic GMAT Club post: ... 39142.html
