Consider the following points:

  1. Assuming there are no gaps/academic issues, at a high level you definitely meet the qualification requirements. Whether that is good enough to get an admit is however a far more evolved topic; we don't speculate on school selection for reasons mentioned here.
  2. The transition you've made sounds interesting. Just the industry however is not enough. It is important to showcase your achievements and how those differentiate you from peers- think along those lines.
  3. The ECs are all dated. Schools expect something after college too. Read here why.
  4. Finally, at a glance, the academic arc looks average/weak. A good GMAT can partly help on that front.


In summary, go for it but you have your task cut out.

Cheers,

Hey there,

We feel that you will be able to showcase a good quality of work and leadership experience given your stints with IT and consulting. ISB looks for well-rounded profiles that have been able to demonstrate an impact both at work and beyond, hence we feel that extra-curriculars mentioned above may be inadequate, purely because they seem to be in the past.
You will definitely need a strong GMAT score, try targeting 720 and above and that will make your profile more competitive.

Feel free to reach out in case of any queries.

Well, there are two alternatives here. One is you do the GMAT and give things a shot this year. Alternatively, if you can wait, it might be prudent to build the profile and then stake a surer claim next year. For the latter, read here.
