i think you have as good of a shot as anyone... just make sure on your remaining essays, you really drill down the "why you want to go to X school" portion of it. usually it's not recommended that people apply to more than a handful of schools, because the quality of the essay and overall application will start to deteriorate. also, they don't usually have a real ranking as to what school they would prefer going to - they just apply to all of the "top" programs and hope to get in somewhere.

if anything, i'd recommend you closely look at your remaining schools, and see if they would be a good fit for you. if you find that they're not, then don't apply there, and instead focus your time on whatever schools are left.

Your GPA, GMAT and work experience are all very impressive. I know experience at the IFC is something that grad schools look very favorably upon. None of the schools on your list is out of reach with your profile. However, like shadowsjc said, your essays also play a big role in the adcom's decisions. You should focus on your previous experiences and future career goals. Since you worked at the IFC, are you looking to into something more government or non-profit oriented? If so how would you benefit from getting a MBA? These are just some examples.
