I am graduating from my undergrad in a few weeks with a BBA. My overall average is likely going to be around 78%, however my third year is about 81%, and this year is set for 84%.
In a few years time I would like to go to Rotman/Queens/Ivey/Schulich, preferably Rotman. I have taken sample gmat's and am confident I can score >710, I will be working in Finance after graduating and plan to apply at 25-26 after 3-4 years of WE.
My question is based on this limited info, some community involvement over the years and maybe some interesting hobbies, (I do Kendo (western fencing) would that be interesting to Adcoms?) would I have a competitive profile for these schools.
Oh, I'm also a Caucasian male and plan to go into IB after I have my MBA.

Yes, based on what you gave me, you will be competitive at all these schools. However, the leadership and impact profile you can put together at and outside of work over the next few years will be decisive. The Kendo is a bit unusual, which helps, but I'm not sure if you could show a lot of leadership through it. Also, it doesn't have a strong social impact dimension. But if you started, led, and/or grew your own Kendo association and used it as a way to build cultural bridges (participating in international tournaments, traveling to Japan, etc.) it would start to get more interesting. Think leadership and impact.
