thinley,

With more info, I (or others) might have a better guess at your chances. I'm by no means an expert, having only myself primarily as a guide, but the following info would be helpful:

undergrad institution: how prestigious, and where you ended up in your class or gpa.

mba: same questions as for undergrad. Was is top 10 in US?

pubs: those were in academic journals?

lor's: can you get good academic references from "well-known" people?

gmat: your test date isn't for some time, but are you studying already, and if so, what are you scoring on the practice tests? I'm no expert here either, but I'm sure others are. This is, after all, the GMAT forum!
