You have robust profile with good academics, EC's and GMAT score. You can consider UNC Kenan flagler, Duke, Emory, UCLA Anderson, Tepper as safe schools however if you are looking at career in energy consulting then you should target Haas, Tepper, UT Austin McCombs, SMU Cox, Texas A&M university as they have high % of class entering into energy sector and some of these are safe schools based on your profile as well.
From your profile I feel that you have less work experience so I would suggest you to wait for one more year and build your profile in the next one year and then apply as most of the above b-schools have average work experience between 3 - 6 years.
Let me know if you have any questions...happy to assist
