The Community Currently Rates The Odds At: 42%

    You've got really impressive work experience and extra currics. However, the odds for a 33 year old with 12 years of work experience at matriculation are generally pretty slim. Given that you come from a highly competitive demographic (Indian-Male-Engineer), it gets even more challenging. A slightly above average GMAT doesn't move the needle too much. One would recommend looking at European programs (IMD/HEC/INSEAD) that value older candidates and more work experience. It would also help they're a little forgiving on test scores and demographics.
