For the schools you mentioned, it really comes down to the GMAT. Shoot for at least a mid-600s or better (and ideally above 700) and you should be competitive.

I will have a 1 year gap in my employment. Will this be a factor? I am actively searching for jobs also while preparing for GMAT. But it is difficult find one especially because I need sponsorship.

Yes it can be an issue, but all you can do is to continue looking for work. Being a mother w/ child is certainly a consideration (i.e. if you were a man, that one year gap will be an even bigger issue), but the unfortunate truth is you're competing against others in similar circumstances who are fortunate to be employed (or others who don't have the same life circumstances as you do but have stronger resumes nonetheless).

Again, all you can do is to continue job searching, do the best you can on the b-school applications, and hope for the best.
