Background: Graduated from UT Austin with a 3.5 GPA in Chemical Engineering. Work as an engineer for a leading/Fortune 500 Oil and Gas firm in various roles (Operations Engineer, Project Engineer,etc.). I have 5 years experience and I'm looking towards the future at possibly getting into a project management role/commercial/business side. I have a GMAT of 710. Do I have chances at MIT, Duke, Rice , UT McCombs, Kellogg, and Columbia?

Absolutely - i would also expand your horizons and look into what you would like to do and what schools may match your interests in terms of geography and lifestyle (city center vs. Tuck). At this stage, you are shooting for R2 most likely. This lineup looks as good as any, but I would be realistic about what you can pull off in terms of essays and applications (LOR's are particularly tricky with a large school count)

I see nothing that would keep you out and a few things that will help you get in (your work experience is not very common and your degree, assuming a good GPA and reputable school, will help!)
