shitijmalhotra,
Your profile looks quite attractive on the surface for all of the top Masters programs. The question is, what do you want to do after school? This will help me advise you on the best type of program for you. That said, if your stories are strong and you put together a powerful enough application, you should have success with those stats! Reach out if you would like any guidance while applying. [email protected]

Good luck!

The profile is above average, the chances should be really good. Try clearing the CFA level 1, it will definitely add a lot.
Best wishes,
