Hello,

Thanks for the detailed information. Given your academic profile, professional experience, and extracurricular/community activities, I would say you should aim for schools such as Michigan State, Emory, Georgia Tech, University of Texas, Georgetown, etc. Basically, the lower GMAT score of 640 combined with limited professional experience (only 2 years at the time of matriculation) put top schools just out of reach. Further, your extra curricular and community activities seem mostly relegated to college time frame. The things you are involved in now show passion/support for local communities, but do not necessarily demonstrate leadership, which is critical for top schools.

Hope this helps - best of luck!

If you feel that you can improve your GMAT score, you should retake it. I'd also suggest that you gain more experience and spend the next year or two developing your leadership profile (inside and outside of work).

Onboarding new hires would not count as community service - might help with demonstrating commitment to your company, but not community.

Mentoring senior employees is good, but this seems like an informal, ad-hoc activity. To some degree, all junior employees guide and inform their managers' decisions (well, not all!), so I don't know how you would be able to position this story as a unique strength. Hard to make it into a concrete achievement or story. Sorry :(

Good luck,
Mili
