    For you and every other 2+2 candidate, just know that Harvard’s deferred admit program is a tough nut to crack. You have slightly higher odds if you have a solid STEM background and/or are female because those were two orginal goals HBS had in mind when it created the 2+2 admissions process. That said, you do have excellent stats with a 3.95 and a 760 GMAT. Your two summer internships at MBB and the MBB job offer in your pocket is additional evidence of your potential and your ability.

HBS looks for those with a *habit* of leadership so my guess would be to work on that a little bit more. Also, from the "community service" perspective... you don't seem to have that in any part of your profile except for your post-MBA goal. With a bit of work, you can be the ideal regular MBA candidate... but not the ideal 2+2 candidate. You're from an overrepresented pool and don't have a STEM degree. Unfortunately, it is hard to see why they would pick you. Work a bit more on rounding your quant-heavy ...
