Hello pj2101

The answer to this question would demand much more qualitative input around your profile and your preference of geography as well.
For instance, if you are considering studying in India itself, you do not have many options and have a decent profile (statistically speaking of course) to make it to most top Indian B Schools (AKA ISB/IIMs one year programs). A lot will depend on what lies outside these statistics as well (career progression, achievements, extracurricular activities, essays, LOR etc.)
If you wish to study outside India, we are talking close to a 100 schools to choose from. Depending on your interest, financial background and duration of the program you may some geographies in mind. For instance, US has mostly 2 year programs, Europe, generally speaking, is more accepting of people with higher years of work ex. Canadian schools have a one year program (again broadly speaking), then there's Singapore, UK as top destinations too.
Purely based on the stats of your profile, top 10-15 schools in US gt ruled out (again this is generalization) since your GPA and GMAT is below average.
So to answer your question one must go deeper to understand your interest, background in much more qualitative detail.

Hi pj2101

You have a decent profile. IIT with 700 GMAT Score is definitely good. Your academics and work experience are good. Having an international exposure will certainly add more weightage to your profile.
You can however give a shot to top 30 B schools but you will have to work really hard on your application essays, show the Adcom how you are the right fit for the applied MBA class. The admissions officers want to see evidence of leadership and essays that demonstrate you have a plan as to what you intend to do after earning your MBA. Solid profile which is balanced on all fronts - academics, career growth and impact, and leadership experiences outside work is more likely to impress the Adcom pannel.

Use the link mentioned below to know your chances of getting into any B-Schools by using our ingenious tool called “Chances Of B-School” by entering your profile details.

Hi PJ!

When do you plan to apply? My recommendation is to try and take the GMAT again and wait one year before applying if you were thinking about R2.

With Round 2 applications due in a couple of weeks (and Round 3 not recommended), your best chance at creating a compelling application is to give yourself time for both the GMAT and for your essays/story/networking. You're still only 26 and below the median age for someone going to b-school, so you can afford to wait.

With a GMAT above 730 you make yourself much more competitive at schools ranked 10-15, which are going to place well at both MBB and other consulting firms as compared to those ranked 15-25.


Regards,
