Hey there!
Great to hear from you!
So you have some very good stuff in your profile. Your a female candidate! And with management experience (awesome). You have very good GPAs as well.

At the moment it's a little bit hard for me to truly evaluate your worke xperience, since I am lacking detail, so feel free to write me about that.


However, even if you have much good stuff, your school list is out of range. Only the Haas PT program would be reasonable. Your GMAT is too low for the schools you propose, and also if you don't come from an IIT and are from India, Top 10 schools can be a big challenge even if you DO get the GMAT score.


So first of all, given that you have plenty of time to retake, I would highly suggest doing so. Have a look at this article for further thoughts: http://admissionado.com/mba/to-retake-or-not-to-retake-that-is-the-question-indian-applicants-and-the-gmat/?utm_source=btg&utm_medium=forum&utm_campaign=mba_blog


Secondly, I would readjust your school list in the 10-30 range.

I hope this helps!
Best,
Jon
