Your work-experience is very strong, but that said, there will be lots of competition from other finance candidates as I am sure you are aware.
Your combined GMAT and GPA are good but not exceptional. Have you considered taking the GMAT another time? I am a low beta person, I do not like risk, so given your very solid but not amazing GPA an amazing GMAT would create a stronger profile.
I think including the CFA level 1 is fine; absolutely no need to state anything about not passing the Level 2.
You overall qualifications are strong, not I do not see the exceptional jumping out at me. I want you to now begin to think about what you have done that is exceptional? How have you been a leader? How do we know you will be a leader post-MBA. Where have you shown innovation and initiative? Your extracurriculars are nice, but have you taken on a leadership capacity and have you initiated anything of merit?
Recommendations? WHo do you have to write the most superb recommendations about you? The kind that say that you are a candidate that is stellar? It is my opinion that you need to be 110% confident that the people who write your letters will say things that set you distinctly apart from the competition.
I think you need to really focus in now on the packaging of what you communicate? Your application, essays, resume, interview, recommendations need to tell a story about what differentiates you from the other applicants in a way that makes you THE candidate to accept? How are you different and how are you better?
Best of luck-
