Hey there dude,
Well you have a pretty good profile: Great grades, a lovely GMAT, managerial work are your primary strengths. On the weakness side are SUNY Buffalo and your employer (meaning it's probably not bad, but it's not the same as working for a big name feeder firm). I think top 10 will be a bit challenging but you'd have a shot (and more or less of one depending on the details of your work experience, about which I know very little).

Your school list is pretty good, even if maybe a wee bit on the challenging side, UMich, NYU, Cornell, should be pretty competitive for you... Yale maybe too. The others will be a bit more challenging, but like I wrote, overall, it's pretty good.

How do you make your profile more appealing to the schools? Amazing essays. That's the key from here on in.
