Anshul-

great profile. I don't see why you shouldn't have a shot at your target schools, and even INSEAD and LBS seem within reach. You will need to make sure you explain the gap in your resume and hopefully you did something interesting therein. Otherwise, I think what helps you stand out is your vast team experience on the international level. This kind of experience has grown in value over the years, and will offer more to your classmates than the typical finance or consulting person who only worked on domestic projects. You also have achieved some substantial "community involvement" and EC-type milestones, definitely above and beyond the typical NGO volunteer. I like that you appear to have led several efforts outside of work. Finally, your vision and goals seem well aligned with what you do and have done. I think for all these reasons, you should be able to position yourself in an attractive way to the adcoms. Let us know if you need help pulling things together.
