Good combination of Consulting + Startup experience. Your competition here will be from MBB. Solid exposure working directly with the CEO & CTO and the PE portfolio internship. I'd encourage having a longer stint with the startup so you don't give the impression of too frequent job changes.

Professional Achievements:

NTSE, MTSE, KVPY, INSPIRE Scholarships
Secured an Award during the consulting stint at the Big4 firm
Secured a PPO from the MBA internship firm

These are nice and will help us stand-out

Education:

10th - 94.4%
12th - 93.85% (top 1% in State)
IIT (top 5 IITs) - 7/10
IIM (top 3 IIMs) - 3.2/4

10th and 12th won't be as relevant now for the second MBA. The IIT GPA is on the edge, but we should be able to pull-off

Leadership Experience:

Department Head, NSS (IIT)
Department Head of a vertical in the business club (IIM)
Appointed to mentor and train incoming employees at the US-start-up I worked for
Mentor, Women in Consulting community

Good Leadership experiences that'll give us some solid fodder for the essays smile

Extra-curricular Activities:

Music - completed level 4 with distinction (this was during school)
Karate - secured Gold/Silver/Bronze medals (this was when I was very young, I am not sure if this counts)

We can build some solid Leadership and teamwork stories revolving around Music. We can use Karate depending how long you continued it

Questions -

  • What schools can I get if I could get a GMAT score of 720?

M7 will be slightly tough with a 720. Can target T15.

  • What GMAT score should I ideally target?

You should target a higher GMAT score, ideally 750+. Please schedule time with me for GMAT Prep also

  • If I plan to target a second MBA 2-3 years down the line, what kind of work experience should I plan to get in the next 2-3 years?

I'd encourage not having too many short stints as it becomes difficult to justify and could be perceived as you're not clear about what you want to do. Continue with startup unless you're not learning anything new

  • What are my profile gaps?

Highlighted above. Hope this helps smile
