Your work experience sounds compelling, but with only a couple of years under your belt when you applied, you were likely coming in below average. I am going to also guess at least in part that your rejections are tied to your academic record and GMAT. In the Indian applicant pool you have the unfortunate challenge to be competing against graduates of the top five universities in India who also have GMATs well into the 700s. It is likely that your application simply did not stand out amongst the throngs of "overqualified" Indian applicants. One of the benefits to US b-schools when they admit Indian students is a big pop in their GMAT scores. Your application did not offer that, so they may have simply passed on you in favor of someone with more work experience and better paper qualifications. As for making your application better, the good news is, you can always go out and work hard to improve your GMAT score. Nothing you can do about 75% in undergrad, but you can log more work experience of course, and seek out leadership challenges. You may also want to shop schools in the lower top 25. Plenty of good schools out there to try.
