You are being too hard on yourself. Your academics are strong and your career progression is impressive. Your ECs are fine. Many schools are placing less emphasis on ECs because they are difficult to verify. Your goal is to show that you are well-rounded and have interests outside of work. I will ad...

Your profile is strong and your school selections are pretty good. You should look at schools in the top 10-20 range for a "safety" school. When selecting schools, be sure that the school's strengths align with the skill sets you need to acquire to be successful post-MBA.
