So first of all, you have a good profile. Good numbers. A good background. A good job. But the problem is that so do LOTS of others. And when I say lots, I mean lots. Your awards and hobbies likewise are excellent, but many candidate have similar or equivalent things. So the question is going to be: What is the school going to find in you that they can't find in someone else???
Any ideas???

And that will be a major key to succeeding.

Secondly, the low years of work experience will likely also work against you. You have to see how you can counter that, and maybe at the same time consider whether it might not be a good option to try ina year or two (depends on you and your goals, professionally and personally, of course)

Now, for your school list, ISB is the toughest, and then NUS and then AGSM. I do think though that three is a bit low as far as number of schools to apply to. If you can add two more (of course not arbitrarily, but two more that make sense for your goals), then I would feel more comfortable about that strategy,
