7. No extracirricular but have always excelled in job and got timely promotions

I share your concern about your GMAT, especially given your stated goals. I also am concerned about your lack of community service at these highly competitive schools. Finally, Harvard and Stanford seem to be preferring younger, less experienced applicants these days. While your age is not an issue at INSEAD and LBS, those schools prefer applicants with international exposure and multi-cultural experience, which you may have but don't mention above.

Have you considered retaking the GMAT and focusing on the verbal?
