All this is great- and will absolutely help you stand out in this process.

I think you have all the building blocks to be successful at H/S/W or perhaps some other schools too. I think that it is great that you are now thinking about this while there is time to still improve your profile. We offer an early advantage program- and this could really help someone like you. We meet with clients (usually over email and skype) to do an audit of where they are now and where they need to be to be a viable candidate at top programs. We then make a plan to address your weakest points- which at this point might be just clarity of goals- and also developing leadership- so that when you do apply you have already thought about how to best present.
The other area I would say is for you to do some great research NOW- build those relationships with students and faculty and staff at H/S/W and others so you know WHY each is a fit for you- and you may discover for example that S is more a fit than H or W... To get that process started- reach out for a free consult and we can also share how starting early has helped our clients get great results: https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... b-visitor/
Sometimes when the competition is so tough- you can set yourself apart by doing exceptional research on the schools to know why you want to go there (and not just because they are hard to get into) and also know yourself and what you really want from the MBA experience. Here's a good article about how to get to know the schools from a distance: https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... ram-india/
