Hello ankcraz, thanks for your question.

Your GMAT is solid, assuming you’re over 80% on both quant and verbal.

You have solid experience, especially for what you want to do. How well you leverage your stories to showcase your leadership will determine your competitiveness.

The only potential barrier to the top US programs I will mention is your extracurricular activities. In terms of this, what you’ve done more recently has more weight than what you did in university/school. Of course, keep in mind that extracurricular activities need not be limited to official community service. You might also speak to your passions and interests as vehicles through which you have done good for the world.

Best of luck,
Brian
