You have an impressive profile.However, your chances at the seven schools you have listed would largely depend on how well you showcase your candidacy to set you apart from other candidates.Your resume, recommendations letters, and most importantly,your essays will play a critical role in determining your competitiveness for any B-school.

I hope it helped.

Apologies for late reply.

The list of schools shortlisted looks fine. With 7 yrs. of work experience, you are in a perfect stage of your career, which mostly b-schools look for and have fair chances of being accepted. You can try your chances in b-schools by clicking https://www.general-ed.com/chances-of-bschool . You can all put down your leadership skills in your application essays. As b-school interview plays a vital role in selection, I would suggest you to demonstrate professional achievements during final interview.

Let me know in case of other concerns you might have.

Honestly, it will come down to your essays and interview and how well you convey FIT with a particular school... because your profile seems like everyone else applying to those schools.
My goal is to make MBA applicants take onus over their process.
