Thank you for your detailed post. While being one of the first students to graduate from the school certainly provides you with leadership opportunities, overall you would see some challenges applying to 2+2. The number of applicants from India who get into 2+2 is low and they tend to have higher GMAT scores. There isn't a ton of time, but if you want to maximize your chances, I would suggest trying to bump up the score.

Good luck!

Best,
Scott

Hi Ratnam,

As an Indian male applicant, your GMAT score is on the low side (you really want to be aiming for a 740+ given your demographic). However, if you will be applying, make sure to stress in your application how you have demonstrated leadership in your endeavors - that will be really important.

Hope that helps!

Best,
Shaifali

Thanks so much for sharing your profile. Really good to hear how you have overcome some difficult circumstances. Although you have a nice profile, your GMAT, academic pedigree, and really challenging demographic will make it tough for you to break through. Your GMAT at this point is one of the few things you can control (outside of putting together a strong application), so if you think you can improve on this area I would recommend going for it.
