HBS 2+2 Profile Evaluation

My best regards for everybody that cares to read and spend a little of his/her time to send me some advise in this important matter.

This is my academic profile:
I'm currently studying Civil Engineering in Mexico´s #1 university (in this particular carrer).
Current GPA of 4.0
Member of my University's Honor Program, where I'm researching Climate Change consequences in communities surrounding rivers in the northern part of Mexico.
I'm still 2 years short of graduation so I still don't have my gmat score (although I will be preparing for it shortly).

Extracurricular profile (2010-2017 span):

21% of the class of 2020 is international. You seem like a good candidate for this position, for the following reasons (no particular order).

  1. Not a business major
  2. High level athlete
  3. Pristine GPA in STEM
    Median GMAT is 730 so study up.

This info is based on other threads and the webpage linked bellow.
