My best regards for everybody that cares to read and spend a little of his/her time to send me some advise in this important matter.

This is my academic profile:
I'm currently studying Civil Engineering in Mexico's #1 university (in this particular carrer).
Current GPA of 4.0
Member of my University's Honor Program, where I'm researching Climate Change consequences in communities surrounding rivers in the northern part of Mexico.
I'm still 2 years short of graduation so I still don't have my gmat score (although I will be preparing for it shortly).

Extracurricular profile (2010-2017 span):
-High Performance Volleyball Athlete for 11 years.
-5 consecutive Junior National State Championships.
-3 consecutive National High School Championships (including the first one in my High School's history).
-2 consecutive National University Championships (including the first one in my University's history).
-5 Junior State Championship titles in the southern part of the U.S.
-2nd place at the U19 Panamerican FIVB World Championship Qualifier Tournament.
-2nd place at the U23 Panamerican FIVB World Championship Qualifier Tournament.
-13th place at the Boy's U19 FIVB World Championships.
-16th place at the Men's U21 FIVB World Championships.
-Recognized as the 10th best player in the World by stats at the U19 World Championship.
-Recognized as the best volleyball player in my state.
-Recognized as the best athlete in my University's Sports Program.
-Former team captain at:
-Middle School.
-High School.
-State Team.
-University (active).
-Mexican National Team.
-Currently teaching Math clasess at poor Primary Schools in Mexico.

I would appreciate your opinion (a lot) on my chances on entering a top B-school deferred MBA program in the U.S. such as the HBS's 2+2 and its Stanford and Yale equivalent.

Any advice of what I should be doing on improving my profile are kindly welcomed!

You are two years away from graduation so you have not taken your GMAT yet, which is a big part of this eval, but I will say you have many of the right elements these MBA feeder programs look for. Great academics, strong ECS, etc. Two things missing for you are your previously mentioned GMAT along with some work experience. Have you started looking at internships yet?

I have two mandatory internships at my school in order to graduate, I'll probably make one in summer and one in a full semester.
Its highly likely that I'll be working at local constructions in my state.

Should I look for other kind of internships?

You're really young so I hesitate to be too heavy handed with my guidance but if you have already started to sort out your career interests then if you can secure internships close to this industry/role the more aligned things will look when you share your career goals with admissions. Ultimately admissions will recognize you are young so will be understanding but if you know your interests and have an opportunity to secure an internship in that field, I would say go for it!
