    The fact that you are 1) a first gen college grad, and 2) from Pakistan is definitely in your favor. But your stats are well below the class average for INSEAD. A 650 GMAT and a 2.6 GPA put you at a real disadvantage for INSEAD where the faculty are involved in admissions and love high GPAs and standardized test scores. Your pivot makes you a bit more interesting, given your government experience and background. I don’t think INSEAD is going to go for this, unfortunately, and I hope I am wrong. If you are serious about going, I would keep taking the GMAT until you at least get closer to 700. That would significantly improve your chances. Good luck.
