      Hi there,

      thank you for your question. Overall, your profile looks pretty good. I don't know how strong the 77 percent are as your final degree percentage (best 5%, best 10% etc.?).

      For all the schools you mentioned, your academic achievements are most important (particularly for HEC). The schools probably will know your college and may be informed about its quality and reputation. Hence, if your 77 percent is a top score you have a plus. If it is a good score (but not top) then you still may be invited for an interview as the rest you have gained a lot of experience through internships etc.

      Your GMAT score fulfills minimum requirements at most schools but will not impress them. As for HEC, 660 is below average (710) and LSE recommends 680 or more. LBS speaks of a range between 600 and 800 but the average will be rather toward 700 or even a bit more than toward 600.

      So, I recommend re-doing the GMAT and target 680 or more. And if you can influence your final score in your undergraduate studies somehow, I would do that - e.g. if some exams are still left to do you can particularly aim at excelling there and increase your GPA.

      Then I would apply. Overall, I am confident that you will be invited at some of the schools in your list, even with 660 in the GMAT.

      best wishes
