Several things in your profile help set you apart- your work experience, overall solid GMAT, and some really interesting extra curriculars. That being said, GSB is still so competitive that I can't offer any sure hope, to a lesser degree would say that Wharton and MIT are also long shots. But Stern, LBS, INSEAD could be targets. Booth and Columbia and Haas are possible but still tough odds. You would benefit from working with a consultant who can help you package your story in the best way because you have all the elements you need to be successful - but you have to tell it in the most compelling way. Even if you don't do a comprehensive package- a few hours with a consultant could really help. To learn how Stratus can help, use this link: https://stratusprep.com/free-consult/
