You seem to have a very good profile.

 

Are your degrees in Industrial Engineering? If that is so, and/or if your thesis is in a related topic, I would say you are quite competitive and should apply to at least a few top schools.

 

What are your specific research interests? "Operations management" and "decision science" sound very broad.

Yes, my degrees are in Industrial and Systems Engg. My specific research interest is to use statistics, simulation and operations research to plan business strategies (like pricing, resource allocation etc.) to service industries with objective of maximizing profit. Both my thesis were in that direction.

You should definitely apply to Wharton, HBS, NYU, University of Maryland, Georgia Tech's Business school among others. Since you already have a research focus, do take some time to read related articles in top journals like management science, MSOM, Journal of Operations research etc and apply to specific schools who have active researchers in your area of interest.
