You may have a shot, but two big questions come to mind:

1) Do you have any community service/extracurriculars/leadership experiences that you think will set you apart?

2) You're older than the average applicant (~26 - 28 years old), and schools will ask, "Why do you want an MBA now? Why not five+ years ago?"
