Hellokk10

Though you have some strong points in your work ex and extracurricular activities, with your Indian/IT background a much higher GMAT is expected for Tier 1 schools.
A much deeper strategy of your past experience and more importantly your future goals (missing in your post) needs to be prepared to get to a final list of 5-10 schools.

What is your post-MBA goal and why do you feel that you need an MBA? Knowing that would be helpful and you didn’t mention anything about that at all...
