MY Queries
1. Is my profile good enough for top B-Schools?
2. I am thinking of joining a job along with my social venture. What kind of job shall I take which would be in sync with my profile for MBA? I am thinking of a sales & marketing, entry level consulting, Micro finance or an NGO? Will joining an NGO be best for my profile? Also how do you see a 3-month international NGO internship for me at this stage?
3. How can I further improve my profile? I would be applying in Round-1 this year
4. Please let me know your thoughts on my target schools
5. Will retaking GMAT significantly improve my profile, if I am able to score a 750?

It would be great if you could answer my queries. Thanks a lot!
