4. Part of Leadership team at ICICI Bank, India
5. Indian Nationality.
6. Age 29 years
7. No extracirricular but have always excelled in job and got timely promotions
8. I can get strong recommendations from my boss and my clients
9. No exposure to community service but recently got associated with Grameen Foundation. Though yet to devote any personal time.

Goals post MBA:

In terms of academics, this might be your weakness as you suggest. I'm not sure how good 75th percentile is, but you will be competing with plenty of Indians from IIT who scored in the top field of their class PLUS they will have a GMAT of 750 or so.

Despite your impressive work ex, this may make your target schools a long shot. Maybe throw in a less competitive school as well which can also help you get into strategy consulting (e.g. NYU, Tuck) not sure about PE though. But it's totally understandable that at this stage of your career you may only want to attend a top school or not do an MBA.
