Hello, I request you to evaluate my profile. I am planning to apply for Fall2011 (September) intake

My verbal score in the GMAT is less but my English is not at all bad considering I have published several articles in a leading news daily, won accolades in technical paper presentation competitions and compered in events. I want to know whether this would affect my chances of getting into a good b-school.
I am planning to start shortlisting universities in the US soon. I would like to know how competitive my application looks and my chances of getting into a good b-school. Thanks a lot for your patience and time.
