Thanks for posting. You do have a strong candidacy. With regards to applying to Round 3, I recommend that you wait to apply until next year. Do not be overly concerned about your age. Even at Harvard Business School, which has a reputation for looking at younger candidates, the average age of the incoming class was 27.
Final rounds for a given school (be it round 3 or round 4) are often a bad strategy. For many schools, this is the time they are focused on completing their class and picking very specific profiles. In addition, if you submit an application in March and are not admitted, you do not have much time to regroup and improve your profile before reapplying in October for the next season.
