Expert's post
You seem very well suited for a top US business school.  I am not sure how the Indian CGPA translates to a GPA so I would want to know more on that.  Your reasons for wanting an MBA now are solid and differentiated from other applicant.  That is a real selling point.  Your work experience demonstrates leadership which is excellent.  In extracurricular I would like to see leadership as well, if that is a possibility to still work on.  Have you thought about your recommendations?  

Cornell is an obvious fit.  Also perhaps look at UC Berkeley, Tuck at Dartmouth (where I went), Columbia as some other suitable choices.  

Best-
