Hi all! I would like all of your inputs as to what I could be doing to make my profile better, and increase my chances of getting accepted to the top B-schools(HBS, Stanford GSB, MIT, Wharton). I am currently enrolled in my final year of my undergrad engineering program in India, and I am applying to the ISB YLP, I plan to apply to other B-schools for the fall 2014 admissions (If I haven't already missed the deadlines). I have my GMAT exam on 26th July 2013. I am hoping to get a decent score of about 700.

Undergrad GPA (Engineering in India): 3.5(till the end of 6th semester, 2 more semesters to go!)
GMAT: 700 (expected)

Internship Experience:
June'11 to August'11: AIESEC development internship to Mauritius (Women Empowerment).
June'13 to December'13: 6 months: Larsen & Toubro Pvt Ltd.

I have worked as a voluntary teacher for teaching elementary maths and english to school children under a community development program.
Received academic scholarship during my first year, and have been in the top 5 of the class.
Extras:
Film and photography
Music
Fine Arts
Horse riding

I don't really have much technical or business experience as of now. But I believe my extras could be a strong part of my profile.

I wish to apply to the HBS 2+2, and i understand that the requirements/expectations from candidates applying for the 2+2 (i.e directly after undergrad) would be different from those required if I apply for the regular full time programs after a certain work-ex period. I'd just like to know what all I could be doing to just make my profile better, for the 2+2, as well as the regular programs.

Thank you for posting.

We have had 100% acceptance to HBS 2+2 for the past few years.

The key to being admitted (beyond exceptional academics) is:
(a) extensive leadership experience in community service and extracurricular activities
(b) demonstrated work experience at noted companies/organizations
(c) proof that you do not follow the status-quo and are willing to take positions no matter how controversial
(d) ability to secure professional recommendations that support your claim that you have high professional potential

There is not one way to achieve all of these -- in fact, there are infinite possibilities.
