Publications: 4, a couple in journals and a couple in industry magazines.
Extra curriculars: Many leadership roles in school, college and post-university including: school government, marketing head for large university clubs, promoting STEM education in local community, currently leading the deployment of solar power in rural India through a start up I started in graduate school (finalists in two major international social enterprise competitions).
Undergrad school/major: Imperial College, Chemical Engineering
Undergrad GPA: First Class Honours (UK System) ~ 3.8+ GPA
Other education/coursework: Grad School, Masters in Econometrics (3.82 GPA), Duke University

Point of worry: Recommendation letter from my current employer given only 1 year of experience. Also none of my recommendations will be from MBA graduates.

Hi urkdul, thanks for reaching out for a review.
Background
--------------
Work experience by application in 2017: 2 years at an F500 chemicals company in UK. (controls/automation engineer -> project engineer) 1.5 years as an Analytics Consultant at Deloitte. off to a good start- but on the low side for applying for MBA
Internship: With one of the major international orgs (WB, IMF etc).
Publications: 4, a couple in journals and a couple in industry magazines.
Extra curriculars: Many leadership roles in school, college and post-university including: school government, marketing head for large university clubs, promoting STEM education in local community, currently leading the deployment of solar power in rural India through a start up I started in graduate school (finalists in two major international social enterprise competitions).
Undergrad school/major: Imperial College, Chemical Engineering
Undergrad GPA: First Class Honours (UK System) ~ 3.8+ GPA impressive
Other education/coursework: Grad School, Masters in Econometrics (3.82 GPA), Duke University also impressive but some may wonder why did you do Masters in Econometrics and now want MBA.
Race/nationality: Indian, Indian
International experience: Born in India, grew up in Thailand, 6 years in UK and 3 years in USA. I have worked in all four countries.excellent cross-cultural exposure
Sex: Male
Age: 28 at matriculation great age for MBA - but work experience is lower due to previous grad school experience- more work and less grad school would play better
GMAT Score: 730

The sticky point here is going to be the work experience. It is on the very light side for these top programs. You may be able to leverage the high GMAT to help you get IN to an MBA program next year- but I don't think it would be M7. I think maybe top 30. Your odds for M7 and other top MBA programs will be greatly helped by another year or so of work. You could be helped by some pre-MBA advising and we can help you with that at stratus if you reach out for a free consult.

I see, I did not expect that even an M7 admission would be this difficult. Would waiting an additional year be detrimental given that I will be 28 at the age of application?
