1) Is the Aug 2018 a Typo error? Or you seriously do not know? (FOR GOOD schools, would suggest Winter -Jan 2019 at the EARLIEST, but would PREFER Aug 2019 because better schools et al.)
2) Profile is great, including your work situation, NGO work, and GMAT scores. VERY important to HIGHLIGHT the elements of your role well. Besides, assuming your prospective referees are not well attuned to the idea of the LOR contents, you would have to feed them a lot of details.

Feel free to ask questions for free. PM your resume & set up a time to talk

I have only one question.
My work experience is non traditional i.e. it does not directly pertains to managerial level.
Sure, my work involves managing a team sometimes even working at my own discretion.
But the question, is will it create a hindrance when I will apply for b schools? Will I be completely rejected ?
