Can I get into HBS or Wharton without any extracurriculars ?

I'm a 28yo male from Middle East, not sure if I count as URM in the US.

Graduated from semi-target with 3.8 GPA in Economics.

Completed FRM II and CFA II.

GMAT = 780


3 months of internship at the Central Bank

3 months of intenrship at AM firm

2 years at top boutiqe IB.

1 year at biggest PE firm in my country.


Nothing, literally nothing.

Do I even have a chance without any extracurriculars?
