You seem to have a really strong profile. Most of our clients who got into these M7 schools don't neccessary profiles as strong as yours.
If you can demonstrate strong leadership capabilities, get awesome recommendation letters, you should be fine.
To get into PE or VC, be sure you show that you are ready to do a lot of networking on your own, (or even better, show that you've already established some network in the area). Start doing lots of informational interviews of people working at PE firms and VCs if you have not done so. Having a deeper understanding of the career goal, and underlying passion that drives you to the goal would strengthen your application.
