Hi Akshat,

Barring few exceptions, one shouldn’t focus on a school depending on what you want to do in the medium term. It should be mainly driven by your short-term goal. Moreover, unlike few years back, now most reputed programs have better entrepreneurial offering. Gone are the days when Babson was preferred just for its entrepreneurial offering.

Hey Akhshat,

You overall carry a good profile but you should definetly about retaking the GMAT. As you have pursued CA, I am sure that you can score much better than 600, the ambitious b-schools you have considered are among top 10, with your GMAT its very difficult or equal to impossible.
