Hi -- so far your profile looks good! Strong academic and community involvement, leadership, great numbers. Now, HBS will want to know more about your goals and aspirations, why MBA, why HBS, why 2+2's unique program, and what you hope to do professionally in the years between being accepted to the 2+2 and beginning your Harvard studies. What drives you? What makes you "Harvard-y", as opposed to simply a high-performing undergrad? How do you envision becoming an industry leader in the long term?

My suggestion is that you spend the next few months studying the 2+2 program and particularly reading through the bios of previous accepted 2+2 and HBS students. Immerse yourself in the tone of their presentations, and think about where you find common ground with their aspirations and choices.

Meanwhile, internships: look for something with a stronger global brand, so that your HBS admissions readers can contextualize you more easily. Given your location and academic background, you should have many options among the giants of the tech world. Make strategic choices about your internships and involvements from here on, to get your profile more international.

Also, get the GMAT out of the way as soon as possible -- it can be such a productivity drain.

Good luck!
