Hi, and thanks for reaching out!

In general, your profile has potential, I like your work experience and the fact that you are an Indian woman especially (and am I right in thinking that you are already working in the US?), but I am missing a lot of detail in order to see if there is anything interesting in your story, background etc. That will be what makes the difference for many of these schools, after all, as many similar applicants will be applying so you need to find something that makes you special.

If you want some assistance with that, feel free to fill in the request for a free profile evaluation on ARINGO’s website but also make sure you add a lot more detail to what has been previously described here (totally understand if you don’t want to provide very detailed information on a public forum of course).

Additionally, being an Indian applicant your GMAT score could be improved in order to increase your chances of admissions if you are at all up for that.
