Hello madhurchadha, thanks for your question.

I think you have a strong profile.

One question: what was your undergraduate GPA?

Your GMAT is solid; it should open doors at any program, but of course it will be our experience that determines your competitiveness.

You seem to have great leadership experience in and out of work. Remember to speak to specific incidents where you influenced people and organizations; drove tangible results; and took initiative.

In terms of extracurriculars, your college activities will likely not factor as much. Some schools explicitly ask for experiences within the past 3 years. Still, it seems you have a good amount of that. Remember, use the non-work activities, as well, to call out your leadership!

The one missing piece I see is your post-MBA plan. Why do you need/want an MBA? The more you can paint a picture that cohesively ties together your past and current experience with your future goals, the more competitive you will be. You have to demonstrate how business school will enable you to achieve your ambitions.

Otherwise, I think you could apply to the schools you list.

Best of luck!
Brian
