1. I am assuming a GMAT of over 700 and anticipated promotions; you will have a competitive profile for your target programs and in the U.S. top 10.
2. If you are aiming for marketing, it would be great if some of your experience related to marketing. While you had leadership experiences in college, it doesn't not appear like you have them currently. Hopefully in the next 1.5 years, you will again assume leadership roles, if not on the job then in your CSR initiatives.
3. If you want to focus on programs strong in marketing and strategy management, consider Kellogg, Duke, Ross, Tuck, Cornell Johnson, HEC, and Haas.

Best,
Linda
