Here are answers to your questions :
Q.1 Please do guide me if there are some other extra-curricular activities that I should take to improve my chances.
You may get involved in some volunteering activities .However, your major focus at this time should be to ace the GMAT.
Q.2 Also, kindly let me know whether my age could be a factor which could deter my chances of getting selected into schools as per my choice.
Since you are aware that age factor may be a deterrent for you, I am not sure why are you further delaying it to R-3-4 ( most competitive rounds) or even 2015. Sorry for being so blunt.
You may email me with any questions you have for me.
