Hi - thanks for writing! Overall, it seems that you have a solid profile with good work experience and extracurriculars, so I think that INSEAD (while of course quite competitive) isn't out of range for you. Your GMAT score is strong so that should help offset your GPA somewhat (especially since GMAT is more recent), but I would still recommend writing an optional essay to explain it so that the AdCom is assured of your academic abilities.

Hope that helps! Do let me know of any other questions.
