Thanks so much in advance for the evaluation. Here goes...

GMAT Score: 690 (Q48V37) on 14th mar,2013

Undergrad - in computer sciences from Gautam Buddh Techincal University- 4yrs - 64% - first div
PMP certified in good standing since 2010 (Project mgmt professional - PMI)
Certificate Program in Management of Software Development (CPMSD) from Indian Institute Of Management (IIM) Calcutta, WB, India.
IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL v3) Foundation from Cabinet Office, UK.
A couple more certification.

Work Experience:
Working at HP Services Singapore (earlier in Ericsson/ HCL tech) as a senior consultant Since May 2010 and earning 100k+ (n hv saved up some money for my MBA :) :) :) ) . I have about 7 yrs of exp.
worked in US/Hongkong/Singapore/India, and can show achievements/ progress made in my career.
Job profile - IT Consulting/ pre sales/ CRM / Project management ...handled big multi million $ project , worked for Singapore govt/ Hongkong Hotel and casino company/ 2 US fortune 500 companies etc.
Also I have worked extensively in multi cultural work env with people from different backgrounds and geographies.

Achievement and Volunteer work.
• Recipient of HP's ‘Making a Difference' Award 2013 for ‘Achievement and Contribution’ towards business excellence.
• Active Volunteer for HP Singapore Social Impact Committee (SSIC) – A Social Service and Innovation group.
• Active CRY (Child rights and you) member since 2007. CRY is Indian NGO working for underprivileged children.
• Initiated and leading an HP CRY joint venture project : eHealthServices for remote villages
• Recipient of B-Level Certification in National Mathematics Olympiad Contest 1999.

LT/ST Goals:
My professional objective is to make a career in Business strategy and planning within HP Enterprise Services. I plan to go on an LOA (Leave of absence), complete my MBA and join my company back in a leadership role. My short term career objective is to augment my leadership skills, gain expertise in business strategy and planning, global consulting, sales and marketing. This is part of my official career goals in HP, and I am already undertaking a mentorship program with my mentor in HP, He is a Director - APJ Strategy and Operation.
I have been planning my finances and making progress towards my career goals for the past 3 years, and In terms of experience and financial capability, I believe now is the right time in my career to go for an MBA.
I would be company sponsored (about 20% of tuition fees) and I will fund the rest with my personal savings.

Weakness is that my undergrad is NOT from a TOP univ, Its an avg\above avg state univ. Although i have tried to get industry level certifications like PMP \other mgmt certifications, to mitigate this.

Target Schools:
I want to be very practical while i apply to US MBA Schools. Please could you suggest a few safe and few target schools for me?
Perhaps a couple of reach schools too?

Best Regards
