sir,
Thank you for the reply. I am currently in more of a operational strategy role. Post MBA I wish to work in the consultancy domain.
I am targeting fall 2015. Do you suggest I retake?
How close am I to Cornell and Tepper?

You'd need to be above average on at least half the criteria to have an average chance.

Sir,
By being above than average in atleast half the criteria, what specifically are you referring to?
My profile is mentioned above, would you suggest I retake the GMAT? Or should I start working on my essays and application?

Well, each school will assess several criteria, which they will list in their brochures. International students will have average GMATs around 50 points higher than the domestic students. I think you won't be above average on work experience or GMAT unless you improve that and other apsects.

Sir,
Considering I retake my GMAT in June end, and start my application process from early July, will I have sufficient time to finish up my essays and apps? I know it depends a lot on the individual, but what is the average number of weeks people put in to essays and apps?

That really depends on the school. It's late for entry this year, at most schools but it is worth talking the time to get into a good school. Since you are planning on entry in 2015 you should be fine.

I don't think a average time for making applications is really useful. The variances will be massive.

I'm not sure that these are 'safe' schools: I'd say they are mostly schools where you are a competitive candidate, perhaps even a strong. But for a safe schools you'd need to be looking at school with a 600 average.
