First of all, thanks for your time. Request you to please help in resolving the admission dilemma
My Background:
1) Over five years of total IT experience as a Techno-Functional Consultant. Worked in Japan, Taiwan and China. (Total of around 2 Years of international exposure) .
2) All five years I stayed with the same company. My expertise is in ERP deployment. I have a diversified experience and knowledge of global business process across different modules like Supply Chain Management, Inventory Management, Warehouse Management and Finance implementation.
3) Bachelors in Electronics and Electrical Engineering. Stood 4th in class of 64. My percentage is 70 %. I have no idea of how to calculate GPA.
4) GMAT Score: 650 80% (49 / 88% 29 / 53%)
5) Currently leading a team from India for a global implementation project.
6) I have some good leadership experience in different countries which might be helpful for my essays.
7) Took part and actively organized social initiatives through clubs but these are very less.
8) Age: 27

My queries:
1) Should I retake the test?
2) What schools I need to target with the current score?
3) How can I calculate my GPA? I have given my GPA as 3.7 while giving the exam.
4) I am targeting 2010 admissions. Please suggest any points for improvement in my profile.

I am thinking of applying to Duke University (Fuqua) ,Stanford University ,Northwestern University (Kellogg) .Please suggest some good schools i can target for.

What are you hoping to do post-MBA? Where in the world do you hope to settle down/live after b-school?

In any case, if you're targeting top schools, you need to re-take the GMAT, especially if that 55% number is your verbal score (IT/quant guy with a very low verbal score raises concerns). Also, don't convert your raw grades from abroad into the GPA. Adcoms don't expect that, and if you graduated from a non-US college, they will look more closely at your GMAT anyhow, which is why you should re-take the GMAT.
