Impressive. What do you wish to do after? You have some solid experience, degrees, scores, etc behind you, but what is it that you wish to accomplish in life? Perhaps elaborate on that, that's what really counts... take care.

sj8ua,

You didn't mention your post-MBA goalsm which are critical in school selection. You have a strong profile but you are in the very heavily populated Male Indian Technology category which means you must work hard to stand out from the pack. Your community involvements while impressive seem somewhat typical, so I might recommend finding a true leadership role in a community organization and really making a strong impact there (i.e., board level or at least team leadership role). This leadership impact will help you establish the leadership profile the top schools expect, which it sounds like you'll need since I assume you do not have formal leadership roles at work. Unfortunately, the fact that your profile is not terribly unusual will make schools like Stanford and HBS very, very difficult for you to break into. Your odds would be better at places like Chicago, MIT, etc.

Good luck,
