Hello ,
Hi manikahu91, Thanks for reaching out. I will review your profile below.
I request you to have a look at my profile and let me know what I could do to increase my chances of getting into my dream school.

GENERAL:
Sex- MALE
Age- 26
Nationality- INDIAN

UNDERGRAD DETAILS:
B.tech in Computer Science Engineering- from a private University - CGPA- 6.75/10
2009-2013This GPA is not going to catapult you to the top of the pile- but depending on rest of profile it may not keep you out of the game

WORK EXPERIENCE:
Interned at a start up in Digital Marketing. 2013(June- December)
worked as Programmer Analyst in Cognizant Technology Solutions. Worked in Data Warehousing and Analytics domain
2014-2016
Cofounder - MR. HR SOLUTIONS
2016- Present Interesting experience
Developed Analytics based HRMS. Clientele includes brands like Sopra Steria, Tech Mahindra and TATA.
Founder- YINZIT
2017-present

Community and Service:

Extra Co-curricular -
I am a Keyboard/Harmonium player, performed at various Classical Programs while in School.
Going to speak at Tedx event in next month on Analytics - How big is it? Very cool- you might be able to send the link as part of your application if it turns out well

GMAT score- Taken in August- 700
Taking it again Next month - Projected score on prep tests- 720-730 That would be great to strive for 730+ as with your gpa a bit lower having a higher GMAT can really help.

Dream Schools- Harvard, Stanford, Wharton

Specific Questions and details- Whom should I seek for the LOR?
My previous supervisor at my last company, 2 of my clients ( 1 has been alum of ISB) Really depends on who you think would best go to bat for you- but I think it could be good to have a prior supervisor and then one of your clients from most recent company.
I suffer from Ankylosing Spondylitis(Auto Immune Disease) and Thoracic Kyphosis(mild- a condition of hunched spinal cord; doesn't fall in PWD)- Due to which I have had episodes of Immense pain in past that I had to fight through school and college.
What are the loopholes of my application? You can check with each school's disability office to understand more about that- if you need some accomodations I'd check there. In terms of the actual application, I'm not sure how that helps you to go into this if it takes space away from your accomplishments at work.
Should I take certification courses from Coursera or Harvard On Campus Extension school in Marketing/ Economics / Finance?
My future plan is to be a VC , helping startups in domains of tech. online courses from Coursera or Harvard can be helpful- especially if you link them to a specific skill you are trying to learn to grow your business. But I don't think they materially influence the MBA admissions process. I would focus on what you have accomplished professionally- your results, your goals for future and how the MBA helps you get there. Your dream list is pretty lofty at this point- if you want to stay with RE theme, you might want to add some schools with strong RE like UCLA or UNC Kenan-Flagler. I'd definitely broaden beyond H/S/W on your list if you for sure want to go to B school next year. Odds of H/S/W are about 10/6/19% so keep that in mind - and I suggest broadening a bit more.

Thanks in advance
MANIK AHUJA
