I think you can work this out ourself. Generally, successful international applicants at these schools will have above-average work experience and GMATs (I would expect around a 50-point premium).

I would hesitate to recommend any of these schools if your goal is to stay in the US after graduation. If you're planning on returning to India, these would be fine, but in general, for US placements you'll want to look at ranked schools, which offer more robust career service support for international students.

Personally, I would consider re-taking the GMAT. The $250 is a drop in the bucket compared to the increased earnings and better career services that you can expect from a ranked school.

It's a decent program, but isn't your GMAT a bit low? Average there is about 610.
