Your numbers are good, but coming from India very "middle of the road", so you are gonna get in or not get in in my opinion based on how amazing, unique impassioned and interesting a profile you present in your essays, recommendations and interview. You need to do all that you can to get away forma "run of the mill" profile, and make yourself shine like a diamond to secure as many admits as possible.

Also, think long and hard about which goals you want to present to the Adcom.


Best to ya!
