You are getting a bit of a late start for round two schools, but assuming you can find some programs with rolling admissions I will say you have plenty in your profile to be attractive. STanding out in the Indian applicant pool is tricky, but with Private equity and banking experience, you will differentiate yourself in a pool dominated by engineers and IT professionals. Emphasize your leadership experience and speak specifically to the things you bring to the table from your finance background which will be valuable to your classmates. Hopefully you will get good news from the schools to which you have already replied, but if not, there is still time for a third round application or a rolling application. Another thing to consider would be part time programs, which are generally more forgiving of raw stats. i don't really see much of a match in your profile for Stanford/LBS/HBS, which typically seek out only the highest career achievers. It's tough to demonstrate that kind of leadership in banking at your stage in a banking career. There are simply too many 780 GMAT scorers out there who have virtually cured cancer which you are competing with and at this stage, you are sized up against not only your fellow R3 applicants but also everyone on the waitlist from the first two rounds. As for which schools you should try, look at University of Melbourne, NUS in Singapore, & UNC in the United States.
