Why not ISB. Its an Indian B school with international perspective. You can get placed right away in ISB if placement matters lot to you.I think you have enough experience and a good GMAT.Then why not ISB. Moreover Schulich school of Business (Reputed B school) is offering its MBA in INDIA from this year I think. Then why not Schulch MBA in India.Just giving you some options.

Ya. KPMG audits every three years. If you checked the MBA rankings there are schools which are audited in 2010.But they are ranked under par. Audit in 2010 gives you the latest perspective.Moreover FT gives more weightage to alumni salary and their career progression. So Audit year 2010 universities will be at disadvantage since alumni salaries will be low due to recession. So its better to check the latest audit year Universities rather than the ones which is audited way back.If those Universities (the ones with old audit years) are audited in future we will know the exact situation. We need not worry about the audit year if its in top leage like Sloan,Stern,HEC,LBS etc. Otherwise I think we have to check that out properly and do more research. I maybe wrong too.

I don't think a score of 550 is marketable in Indian institutes like IIMA,IIMB etc...In fact if you refer TOP MBA rankings,average score of Harvard is 710 where as in IIM it is 770....Of course taking average may not be correct.But as far as indian programs are concerned they are purely academic related.Extreme conditions a mere 2 yrs exp is enough..But in UK it is not so...They give more weightage to exp...So, for this score I may not get an opportunity in IIM but can get an equivalent schools in Uk...But again there are some good schools like Great lakes,etc but the question is 'Is it internationally reputed ?....I think it may take some more time to reach that level...I made enough research in Indian schools ....If you read my early entries you can understand...

Ya your GMAT is not good enough to get into ISB . But consider the audit year problems with FT rankings.I explained it clearly. I don't think I am wrong in it. Anyway choose a good program which has good career prospects. There is no point getting a job whose salary makes it 4-5 years to breakeven your investment. So consider the career prospects carefully.All the best
