If you earn the GMAT you anticipate, You would be a highly competitive at your target programs. You would also have a good chance at getting scholarship. However, you may have to work harder to get into IB or M&A because the elite Wall St. firms don't recruit at all or much at these programs (with the exception of Fuqua.) If you do not have the contacts of your own to get hired, make sure you are applying to programs that support your goals.

Best,
Linda
