I don't know what they really mean but they say applicants MUST have a degree from international Tier A school. What the heck does that mean?

It means that your school is considered to be at least decent, doesn't mean you must have necessarily gone to Oxford or Cambridge.

You better make sure your GPA is really good though if it's non-target, otherwise you'll need a sky-high GMAT to make up for it.

That surely isn't bad, the gmat score is above average for these programs. Any relevant internships?
