Thanks for sharing your profile. You have a very strong profile with a top GPA/GMAT combo so intellectual aptitude will come across strong. It also seems like you are performing well at work and have solid ECs. As far as things to focus on, seems like you don't have many ECs since college might be worth seeking out some opportunities. Also, you are on the younger end, you have targeted programs that are receptive to younger candidates but know your work experience broadly will be on the lower end. I would also say make sure your resume (impact) highlights strong results because given your age I doubt you will have much leadership experience to lean on. Finally, your essays will be key at these schools so you will need to find ways to stand out. You have a good profile but these are some of the best schools in the world so you are competitive but will need a great application to breakthrough
