Realistically, 550 is no score.

If you want to aim at a good school, the score should be between 650 & 700.

I will be very straight forward with you. Your profile is good but your GMAT score is not up to the mark for a top 20 school taking into consideration your years of experience. If at all you are targeting a scholarship, then 640 is not good at all. It also depends on which country you are targeting ...

Some of the questions you have asked can never be answered because as you said, they are too subjective but subjectivity cannot overcome statistics & simple plain logic. You profile is a typical Indian p...
