What I do not see jumping out of your profile overview is what differentiates you? You want to think about how you have proven to be a leader, an innovator, someone who initiates change? You want to think about what makes you special in the eyes of the AdCom? From what you wrote, this does not present itself. Additionally, no extracurricular or volunteer is a weakness at a top-20 US business school. They are looking for the exceptional, the person who has been significant as a person. Take some time to think this through vis-a-vis who you are, and highlight what differentiates you; if nothing does at this juncture, make plans to take action to add that dimension to your profile. This would be the starting point for you in my opinion.

Best of luck-
