Maybe you should start with the colleges you haven't applied yet. Sounds like you have applied to any random school that sent you a prospectus.

Raphael, here's what I can offer.
First, forget rankings. Forget schools.

What do you want to do professionally? Is it something specific? Are you already set on this idea? If so, an MSc might be a good bet. If you have general ideas and open to different things, an MBA might serve you well. I should add, you ought to have some level of focus for this as well. The MBA is gives you most return on your investment, but only if you make a sound investment and have an idea of what YOU want.

After you decide what you want, decide where you want to be. What are the benefits to your leaving India? What are the opportunity costs? What are the pros and cons?

Gauge your academic strengths and weaknesses. Align them with the academic standards set forth by schools you are considering. Don't go solely by rankings. They change every year. I doubt any school in America or Europe pays to be ranked. Most good schools actually dislike rankings, because they are a bit misleading and distracting.

All this being said, if you are still conflicted, I would respectfully advise that you take some more time to work and gain experience and do more research as well. If possible, a planned trip to schools you might consider would be a good idea as well.

I'm sorry if you feel beaten up my others on this site, but you have to understand that a proper MBA will change your life. It isn't something you should randomly pick from a list or ask another person to choose for you.
