      Hi Mayur,

      in your case the answer is simple. You can apply for ANY Master in Management in the world because you have a great profile and - a priori - will have no reason NOT to apply somewhere. Maybe some school will not take you for other reasons - because they already have accepted many Indians and look for more diversity - or maybe your personal interview was not satisfying for them. But at the moment, you can choose which school interests you most.

      Best wishes

      By the way, don't take the GMAT practice tests too serious. I wish you good luck and hope that you achieve these high scores. But they are not granted because the practice tests ususally are easier than the real test.
