@mba2013-2014 Harvard, Stanford, Wharton are top Universities and are left with only 3rd round of intake where it needs to have an extra ordinary profile. You need to push for fall 2013 intake.

@103071k, If you are targeting for Harvard, Stanford etc. top universities, then you need to be extraordinary.
Of course you should have strong academics, apart from that, you should have shown leadership qualities during your job. At the end, top universities will see what all things you bring to the table and, how much rich experience you have that will help classroom.

Some globally well known NGO's connection will make difference.
Note : Not any NGO (Globally well known).

@ GMAT Score : 750+ (As your academics are not that much strong.)
If you are trying hard, then surely there is possibility.
