Wanted to check whether not taking the English Proficiency test ( TOEFL or IELTS ) and rather using the exemption given to one in case one has completed a graduation course in English, will affect my overall chances of getting admitted to one of the top 20 US Business Schools.

I am a native English speaker who has worked in a multi-national bank for the last 10 years. I have already done an MBA from one of the top colleges in India where English was the sole medium of instruction. The B-schools' application due dates are all in the first week of Jan 2017 and I have yet to take my GMAT exam. Hence given the limited amount of time that I have on hand, I wanted to concentrate on my GMAT preparation initially and, later on my applications.

Will appreciate your thoughts on the same. Thanks for your help.
