Hey!Have been reading your replies to various profile evaluation queries and would be glad if you could evaluate mine.Here goes:
I am applying to HEC Paris, ESCP and EM LYON.I feel I will get an interview call, however I also wanted to ask if it is the interview only that matters in the final selection and if it doesn't, how much relative importance does it usually have in the final selection?

thank you for your question. I talked to the ESCP Europe. For people from outside of the European Union, the interviews counts about 20 percent and the application - that you have sent before (including cv, essays, gmat or gre, toefl etc.) and based on which you have been invited to the interviews - count about 80 percent.
I let you know if I hear from the other schools but I guess that in most cases, the interviews will play only a partial role in the final decision.

I also received feedback from the HEC Paris:
"The interview is a part of the admission and is the occasion to discuss the candidate's career plan and to talk about for example his academic, work, exchange experiences. A good interview and a good application with good transcript, test, references are all important part of the admissions procedure. Being invited for the interview doesn't mean admission."
Hence, the message is the same. The interview is one part in the overall evaluation.
Your profile looks good. if you apply for internationally recognized and renowned schools, your academic grade will be the main criterion. If 87% is a "university topper" at your institution, that's great. The GMAT is fantastic. And your other experience looks interesting too. If you write a good application and good essays, I am confident that you will make to the interviews and even get admission at most schools. With the GMAT of 760, you may even achieve a scholarship - just check the financial aid websites of the schools and apply.
