I would like to apply to the Harvard 2+2 program but need advise on how to further build up my resume so as to stand a good chance. I am from India.
My present profile:

1) AIEEE 2011 rank 512 (out of 1 million+ students). Got IIT rank 4496, gave it again next year (while in college) and got rank 1692 but chose to stay in IIIT Hydrabad only
2) College CGPA-> 8.5/10 ( Computer Science from IIIT Hyderabad)
3) GMAT score - 770
4) Was one of the three elected coordinators for my college fest this year( organized it with a budget of Rs 20+Lakhs and 5000+ visitors).
5) Have been a regular part of student governing bodies.
6) Have finished the Airtel Hyderabad Half marathon (21.1km) twice now.
7) Was a finalist in the I lead India contest, Hyderabad round (organized by the times of India)
8) Did a summer internship with Groupon India for three months.

I am not too sure about my goals. I want to be an entrepreneur but am as of yet, undecided on what to start working with.
I am planning to apply to Harvard, Stanford and Yale (because of their deferred admissions programs) and wanted to know about my chances when compared to the general pool. Also, would it help to take professional guidance while applying (like manhattan gmat or something?) .
Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you!

Dear Shekhar:

HBS 2+2 programs attract some of the smart talents across the world. HBS 2+2 is a great opportunity to apply while you are still in college. So, the academics play a very important role in boosting your profile. Graduation from a leading program in India and a stellar GPA add further to your candidature.

Regarding extra-curricular, you have demonstrated individual, team-skills, and leadership achievements. They help you stand out.

The internship is a positive way for you to put across your understanding of the corporate world.

What is important is to focus on the key points in your profile which makes you unique - story, career plan, leadership/team skills, why MBA now, why HBS and in specific 2+2? is a Bangalore based leading MBA consulting firm that guides the students through all the stages of the MBA application process.
