You have a shot for those schools mentioned. Less so for MIT.

If you were able to get one more year experience you would probably better your chances. With what you have right now, you will need to have strong stories and demostrate some leadership.

Are you looking to apply now for fall 2010 intake or next fall for 2011 intake. If you're applying now I agree with GoBruins, that your work experience might be a weak spot. The rest of your profile looks pretty solid.

I am applying now for fall 2010. The WE is my concern and I want to know if I have a shot with my profile.

Thanks for replying.

I have a couple friends who got into HBS and CBS last year with only two years of work experience. So it's definitely possible to get into a top bschool without having worked for 3+ years. The World Bank is an impressive place to work so you have a shot if you present yourself well. Also, some bschools, like Harvard, like to admit more younger applicants. I suggest you check out the demographics at the schools you're interested in to see if they're more lenient on the WE.
