My stats are 710 and 4.0 UGPA in Engg.
I have good leadership experience at work, good examples of initiatives and lessons learned.
But I havent had much involvement in community activities outside of work. Just things like travelling, scuba diving etc.
I am looking at schools like Chicago and Stern.
Do I stand a chance without any extra curricular activities?

It will hurt you that you don't have some, but it won't automatically keep you out of your target schools. You want to me sure to demonstrate a willingness to get involved and hopefully some ethics and compassion through your other activities (including your job). Whatever you do, don't rush out and join a bunch of community service programs just to "get involved!" Take your existing activities, and make sure that your passion for them shines through.
