Hello prakhag, thanks for your question.

I think your GMAT is where it needs to be – shouldn’t be an issue. In terms of your GPA, what does that equate to based on a US scale?

In terms of extracurricular activities, what you’ve done more recently has more weight than what you did in university/school.

Ultimately, I think your competitiveness will come down to 2 things:

• The quality of your leadership experience in and out of work. Can you draw upon “moments” when you truly led: influenced individuals and organizations, drove results, took initiative?
• In terms of your post-MBA goals, your ability to paint a picture that cohesively ties together your past, present, and future. Demonstrate to the admissions committees that your desired career path necessitates an MBA. The more you can clearly demonstrate that your career goals truly require an MBA – as opposed to the degree being nice to have – the better off you’ll be.

I hope this helps.

Best of luck,
Brian
