You are not a competitive candidate at those schools and the fact that you as means you need to do a lot more research. Find a good book on MBA admissions and read it. 

Assuming you are in Indian without the right to work in the USA, there are no schools in the US that would give you a high chance of placement. 

You should instead consider STEM MS degrees in marketing analytics. Google them to find out more. Rochester is *the* go-to school for you at this stage.

To elaborate, to get into an accredited MBA program, you would need at least 4-5 years of work experience. To get into a top MBA program, like those you mention, you'd need 5+ years of work experience, plus a great GMAT score. If you come from an over-represented applicant group (tech-oriented students from South Asia, for example), you'll want a stellar GMAT score that's well balanced between the verbal and quant sections.

At this point, if you want to study for a business degree in the US, work on your GMAT score and apply to a pre-experience master's in management program. Rochester is a great suggestion, but there are others out there.

If an actual MBA is your goal, get a few more years of work experience under your belt and focus on GMAT prep before you even consider applying.
