dear @snehashish_bal happy to share my thoughts

You have solid grades in 10th, 12th and a very stong GPA! NIT Durgapur is a solid school, though I believe IITs might have a slight edge in terms of brand pedigree during the admission process. You graduated in 2016 so if you apply this year for the MBA program starting in '21, you have have 5yrs of workex when you start

Both Tata Motors and ZS are good brand names. If the promotion happens in December, might be tough to show in your applications and interviews. You will have competition from people applying with MBB consulting backgriunds, so it's important to seert how the work you did at ZS stands out. The part time entrepreneurial sounds interesting, depending on what stage it is we can leverage in the apps and interviews.

Extra-Curricular - Certifications in Quiz, singing, dancing, olympiads,sports etc. during school
NGO experience - Worked in an NGO in Imphal from Aug'17-Feb'18 and was awarded the best Volunteer for the month of Oct'17

This is fine. Do you still work with this NGO? Is is good sto show sustained involvement over a period of time

Post-MBA Goals -
Short Term - Continuing my startup and scaling it up, joining a consulting firm
Long term - Starting my consulting firm and integrating it with the startup I am currently working on

We might need to work on your career narrative because consulting is something that most applicants will have as goal.

Please do suggest the target GMAT score for the target schools and my chances of getting an interview calls from these schools. Thanks in advance!

Given your high GPA, I would target a 740/750+ score to leave no diubt in the minds of the AdCom for that you can withstand analytical rigour of the program. With a 740+ and your profile, M7, UCB, UCLA, Ross, Tuck, LBS, ISB are definitely in reach. WIsh you the best!

@Amit: Thank you for the evaluation. Definitely this is very helpful. To answer some of your questions:-

1- Startup - We will be launching the platform soon and will start registering our target customers by the end of this month
2- Promotions - I am planning to apply in R2 that's why I mentioned about the promotion aspect. My USP at ZS has been the variety of projects - some examples are financial modeling, brand tracking, patient chart study, mobile ethnography study, qualitative and quantitative market research studies, patient journey studies etc.
NGO - Currently I am not associated with the NGO because of my work commitment but I was associated with this NGO during my college time as well
