Hi,
I have applied for a top 10 school and two schools in 30s in Rd.2. No admits as of now. Wanted to know whether my profile has any chance in Rd.3.

Experience -
2.5 years full time experience as Assistant Manager in Big 4 in internal, system audit, risk consulting and ERP review. Individually handled most projects (excellent recommendations)
3 years full time internship in same Big 4 in financial auditing (Handled teams for a few assignments)

Extra-curriculars -
Partcipated in 3,4 projects of an NGO, team leader at organisation CSR initiative for 1 year. Community service experience limited to past 1.5 years.

Adding some "last minute" community service will likely not help your chances much. I would say you would be a long shot for Stanford, but who knows? Maybe they are coming up short on their international student yield. You might have a shot at UCLA, BU and Tepper. The only risk is getting rejected in R3 and then having precious little time to substantially improve your candidacy for R1 next year as a reap. You might consider picking a few more schools, including a couple more in top 25 vs. top 10 or 15. this should increase your chances.
