A few additional perspectives here S:

  1. While the career progression sounds impressive, it will also be important to understand your post-MBA plans. I am guessing that part of the maturity beyond years can be showcased given your promotion spree
  2. The GMAT and GPA would make things a bit less competitive against the IITian crowd in general. That said, there is definite merit in giving things a shot this year. ISB is known to be re-applicant friendly - though hopefully it won't come to that.
  3. It is not clear if any of your ECs are recent or all during college? That can provide additional color to the profile


Cheers,
