Hi sidmoona!

Your work experience sounds very strong...working for a top retailer will look great, and hopefully entails some exposure to diverse / global teams? If so, be sure to highlight that on your resume. Your goals seem reasonable and clear too given your background. Your academic background is also great!

I think the two main things to improve (since you have some time) are...

1) GMAT -- have you considered a retake? I'd love it if you could cross that 700 mark and get your verbal a bit higher.
2) Extracurrics -- can you add / restart a leadership role outside of work in a community activity? It seems most of what you listed was either during college or work related. If not, the leadership you have in volunteer committees at work sounds great and definitely still "counts"

I think with your current profile and scores, some of the schools on your list are achievable, and some (like LBS) will be quite tough. But it looks like overall you have a good mix.

Best of luck!
Kate
