Hey there,
Overall I think you have a very good profile and good chances. LBS is probably the Top European school (along with INSEAD) but I think with your employer + internships, the fact that you come from Holland and your prior experience in England, and your studies in the US which gives you quite a global profile you should have a good shot. It will be better if your essays and recommendations rock!

What I'm missing a bit in your somewhat brief request is something dynamic, unique, original - and if you can dig up some good and passionate stories for the AdCom, it will help you along too.

Best of luck!
Jon
