I will be graduating from undergrad in less than a month. My university is ranked by US News & WR in the top 10 for public universities (top 40 overall). I will graduate Summa Cum Laude (Highest Honors) with a B.S. in Business Administration. I accepted a job at well-respected and recognized Consulting practice. I took the GMAT a week ago and scored a 710 (49-Quant, 39-Verbal). I plan to get involved with community service activities and strive to take a leadership role within at least one organization. I think I'm interested in exploring operations or business analytics for an MBA comcentration (but, i still have a lot of time to decide). What else should I be doing if my goal is to go to a top 10 MBA program?

You will need to identify and develop relationships with people who will write compelling recommendations for you.
You will need to learn about all the different schools and network with students, alumni and (if possible) admissions officers and professors.
If possible, try to visit every school. At a minimum, start going to information sessions as soon as possible.
If you do not have a lot of quant courses in your major, take a few to show that you can handle the rigor in this aspect of your academic abilities.
Excel at work and try to get good exposure and recognition -- through awards, promotions, exposure and salary.
Lastly, get some unique professional experiences (international if possible- also leadership of teams).

Good luck.
