Hi, and thanks for writing! The HBS 2+2/GSB deferred programs are extremely competitive, and here's what I'd focus on:

- Clarify WHY you want an MBA at this time, for your essays - what are your ST and LT goals, and how will an early career MBA help?
- On your resume/application, fully highlight the impact you've made within that extracurricular organization (and elsewhere within college) - what are some key accomplishments you've had in your time there? AdComs are looking for exceptional extracurricular impact from 2+2/Deferred candidates, since they indicate leadership ability/potential in the absence of full-time work experience
- Your GMAT is very good, but if you do feel you can do better with minimal studying, go for it. a 48 quant score is solid, but if you felt you left points on the table, may as well give it another shot! A high overall GMAT is especially important for these programs (since they don't have as much data on your work experience, etc.)

I hope that those tips give you a good start! If you want to discuss your profile in more detail, please sign up for a 30-min free consultation here: https://www.mbamission.com/consult/?dis ... admissions
