My suggestion would be to start by focusing on the GMAT.  How you perform on the GMAT is going to be a critical determinant in terms of what schools you will be competitive at.  You GPA at a 3.3 is suitable, but light, so the GMAT will be a key metric.

That said, 1.5 years of work experience is also light for a top school.

I also see no mention of leadership, initiative, or innovation in your profile.  Business schools look for leaders- how have you been a leader?  For that matter, what differentiates you from other candidates?  What makes you exceptional?  You should answer this per your career and extracurriculars and volunteer. 

I guess the question is are you looking to go to business school or are you looking to go to a top busienss school.  Of course at this juncture you could be accepted to business school, but from what I read you are not yet ready to be a strong candidate for a top business school.  

Best of Luck-
