Chances with excellent credentials like Startup founder, publications, head Law Review but lower GPA

Hi,
I am pursuing an integrated LLB/BBA degree from a Tier 2 law school in India and in my final year. My current GPA is 3.3 out of 4.0. Credentials:
- I am the co-founder and chief legal officer of a financial firm with around 100 employees and a decent turnover.
- I am the head of the Law Review for my school and published the first edition of the Law Review recently. I am also a member of the Governing Student Council Body and Sports Committee of the school. I have won several sports tournaments.
- I have published around 8 papers in various national/international journals including one from Oxford.

Do I have any chance in schools like Harvard, Oxford, LSE, NYU, Yale etc? What about chances in top 20?

It's unlikely. Top 100 for sure, but the top 20 is probably out of your reach.

I stand in the top 15% of my class and have consistently improved my grades since my first year. What should I do to earn a seat in top 20?
