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).
