    You have a unique profile. Combine that with your IIT pedigree and your 740 GMAT (18 points above Wharton's average now) and I think your chances are good. One thing to note - you'll have a strong case for 100% scholarship if you can increase your GMAT by 20 points (I know a lot of females at Wharton with IIT background and 760 GMAT receiving 100% scholarship). Good luck. You are going somewhere good.
