Chances are 17.8% Jk, I think you have a solid profile and decent chances to get accepted into your top choice INSEAD. You have a couple of things to overcome - a lower-than-average GMAT score and your reasons for wanting an MBA are going to enter you into a large pool of applicants. For this reason, you will want to highlight your strengths and what you will bring, because of your experience, to the class. Does that make sense?
