Now, tell me what kind of schools i should look at. I havent taken the GMAT.

Assuming you have a GMAT score at or above the following schools' average for accepted students, consider CMU, MIT, Michigan, Duke, UT, Haas. There are transcripts of MBA admissions chats
if you click on the link.
In terms of extras, the schools value initiative, leadership, and teamwork. So you want to make sure that your profile includes those qualities. IN addition, the schools like people who are well-rounded, contribute to their communities, and don't just work. So make sure you have a hobby or two and do contribute to your community. Certainly a foreign language and international experience are also valued, but don't forget about community service or non-professional interests.
