Your GMAT, chartered accountant background, and diverse work experience are all assets for you. But I didn't much sense of your leadership on the professional side and it's not clear whether your post-college extracurriculars include "social impact"-related leadership. So based on what I see, I think Wharton, Chicago, and Columbia are longshots, and Stern and Ross are doable, provided there's much more leadership to your profile than your post suggested.
