You have solid chance at Columbia if you apply early decision

And for Booth and Harvard....they are harder to get in than Columbia

LBS likes candidates with more work experience

Maybe apply to more schools? Cornell, Tuck, Darden?

As the previous poster said, you should be competitive for Columbia as long as you submit for the Early Decision round.

In terms of your other schools, I would swap out HBS and UCLA for NYU and Cornell - they will be a better fit for your career goals.
