If you are really considering quitting your full-time job and joining a community service organization, only do so because that's what you're truly passionate about -- not to get into a top b-school. Doing it just for your application (when you're not really passionate about it) will cause your overall story to not fit together, which will hurt your chances overall.
It doesn't have to just be community service. It can be anything that is unique vs. other applicants (and is true about you)... Your background (not professional background), your interests, your hobbies, and any other things that you have passion for.
