Sung,

My answer to your question would depend in part on how old you are now. If you are 27 or older you may not want to wait. There is no harm in applying now for the spring and then applying again later if no school comes through for you. You definitely should be doing something with your downtime. My recommendation is do the thing that matches your goals most closely. If that's starting an NGO then do that (assuming you can afford to do that financially). If getting a job would fit your post-MBA goal better than do that. Your next step should take into account that schools want to see growing responsibility and team-leadership levels on applicants' resumes, so the opportunity that gives you the most leadership responsibility might be best.

Hope this helps,

If you get a 700-plus GMAT score and have some good leadership/impact stories to show them from your internship and NGO then NYU, Columbia, UCLA, Michigan, Northwestern, and Dartmouth may be possible long-shot schools for you because your profile is not one of the most common ones. CBS, NYU, Tuck will be the toughest ones for you, with UCLA and Michigan being the most doable. I would encourage to add some other, less selective schools to your list.

Good luck,
