Expert's post
Hi there,

Sounds like your professional experience is quite strong. Your academics (GMAT + GPA), as I think you're aware, are just average/slightly low for your top tier target programs. All of your extracurricular activities are from college, which was 5+ years ago, so that would likely be a gap in your profile (haven't pursued any of these activities since college). I could be wrong about this, but sounds like the NGO you're involved with is through a program at your company? If so, this may appear as an ad-hoc experience versus a separate community initiative you took. It would likely count more towards firm leadership/stewardship than community work -- the lines blur a bit, though, and it depends how actively you've been involved and what impact you've made on the organization.

All in all, I think your list is pretty good -- Ross and Duke are going to be stretch schools, though. Still, it's always worth a shot! I think you want to think about Cornell, Darden, Tepper, ISB as your target programs, Duke/Ross as reach, and the others as safer programs.

Good luck,
Mili
