i think your background is good rupeshpatel. In case you get a GMAT around 700 you would have good chance for so many schools. I suggest you to search the Schools' websites and find the faculty that are aligned with you interest this would narrow down the number of schools you have to apply for. As you know your background and interests has to be aligned with that of faculty at school you apply for. I case there is no alignment you will not have much chance and i think high GMAT and other qualities would not help that much.
