What's your GMAT? What were your undergraduate and graduate grades? What's your post-MBA goal?

I think you'll have a shot, assuming your grades were above average. If you're targeting US schools, they'll care more about your GMAT (not saying they dont' care your grades) because international students are harder to benchmark with US students. The hardest part for you will be distinguishing yourself from the many other finance folks who will be applying to b-school. Sure, part of it is luck. But you have to make sure to really convince the AdComs that you're better than the next finance person applying from E&Y or PwC. I think you may have a shot, but just be realistic. No one is really a shoo-in anymore for top 10 b-school because of their competitiveness. Good luck!
