My name is Salik, I am from Pakistan, My profile summary is as follows:

I gave my GMAT today and scored 640 [Q=42(47 p),V=35(76),IR= 6(69p) ]. I want to apply to schools in round 2 this year, so in worst case I wont be able to retake my gmat. I have taken it thrice 640,590,640 gave my first attempt in march 2016.My quant score is low but I have had various mathematical courses during the university, few of them of advance level including physics, numerical analysis, calculus advance etc. I may also be able to request my recommenders to emphasize on their observations on my quant skills.

I did my BS of computer science from Institute of Business Administration, Karachi (Oldest and one of the top business schools in Pakistan). I graduated with a gold medal and a CGPA of 3.42. I know two languages, English (Advance), Urdu (Advance, native). I can speak french too, had two courses, struggle with it.

I work in IT department of Dawlance Group of companies. It is a market leader in home appliance industry in Pakistan since 1985. Recently, Arcelik has acquired the Dawlance to enter south Asian market. I have had 3 years of experience(will have 4 years of experience by next year August), got promotions every year and am currently the youngest Deputy Manager in the company's history. My latest responsibilities include managing IT team and initiatives in 2 of our manufacturing facilities in Pakistan.
I have lead various cross functional teams and have completed projects requiring systems overhauls, change management, employee motivation analysis and operations automation.Also,I have been doing projects consistently with top executives/directors of my company, I have had projects that required me to interact with our vendors, low level employees and occasionally our consumers too. I has also awarded outstanding Mentee award under the internal program in our organization by the name of leadership without title.

Social work/Co-curricular:
I have been an active social contributor, recently, I built a team in my city to run a plantation campaign in Karachi. Moreover, I did a social internship back in university. Where I lack is that I do not have a documentation proof of that.It was a recently concluded plantation campaign, I played my role in gathering a team to achieve a target of 100 plants in my area. Other than that, I have been involved in evaluating start up ideas for a course in my university as an alumni elevator at various events and classes . I have also recently registered myself for career counselling clinics at my alma mater to help final year students with their career planning, and interview skills.

I was elected as executive council member for two consecutive years during my second and third year at university. These elections involved proper campaigning and elections were made based on votes from students. I took some first-time-ever initiatives during my tenure.

The progression of my career supports the ambition to eye the position of CIO. I have been involved in process management, process automation and various other projects that added business value to the organization through the introduction or deeper involvement of technology in various business functions. I would like to use my whole mba experience to catapult myself towards the CIO position at an MNC.

I would really appreciate if you could tell me if i stand a chance for Yale MBA given the brief profile above.
