I would appreciate your feedback very much.
Your stats seem to be in place. You have not explained your professional achievements in this post, but the admissions teams will definitely be looking at them closely to ascertain your leadership capabilities.
Your career goals will also be very crucial to earn you an admit. Ensure that your desire to move into management consulting is aligned with the experience that you have built so far. From this perspective, a role in IT consulting companies like IBM, Accenture, Delloite may be more like it. Typically pure management consulting companies follow a standard career path- figure out if you fit in your target companies with your work experience.
You could also look into some other programs that are strong in general management, such as Kellogg, Duke fuqua, Tuck and Ross.
All the best,
