And why is it not an advantageous profile ??? :)

Yes, you are indian male techie... buuuuut with crazy high GMAT, with google as an employer, and working in europe!

That's pretty good, actually and would most likely make you eligible for top 10 schools (depends a bit on the details and stuff of course, but still its pretty darned good)

You just need to replicate that GMAT if it is no longer valid.

And of course write wicked essays!
;)

Let us know if you have any followup questions!
