I'm glad to write that I think you are perhaps underestimating yourself a wee bit... Your school choice overall is a tough on, and I wish there was a few more "competitive schools" for you.. but I feel that with what you have written Stern would not be a "Dream" school, but rather between reach and competitive. And McCombs you would be competitive, I feel. Of course this is a super rough evaluation, because we don't have enough personal info on you (although you are welcome to have a free consultation with us: http://admissionado.com/mba/free-consultation/
The one thing that totally doesn't make sense is your goals. Okay, I mean in REALITY it makes sense, but as an application strategy, it's not so hot, because IT to Finance is a very sought after move, except the problem is that Bschools have tons of amazingly strong finance folks who apply, so why would they choose you??? So I'd reconsider presenting that as a goal to the AdCom...
Also, maybe add some of these schools to your list: Anderson, Johnson, UNC, Tepper, Georgia Tech...
Hope this helps!
