Hey good sir,

Thanks for dropping us a line!

Overall I think your profile is very solid - you have the GMAT, the GPA, and pretty good work experience.

The tough challenges in your profile are your pool (Indian/Male/Tech), your school (non IIT), and maybe your employer could be stronger.

But these can be overcome with awesome essays! And I think that is the key here. The biggest danger in your profile is that you fall between the cracks and you come across looking and sounding like everyone else. What you have to do is bring your personality to the forefront, and your dreams and goals.

Basically: great essays.

If you need any help, feel free to drop us a line on our website: http://admissionado.com/free-consultation/mba-consultation/?utm_source=btg&utm_medium=forum&utm_campaign=mba_blog

Best,
JF
