Thank you for your posting.

While you have an impressive background, you have to realize that you are part of the most competitive demographic. This means to be accepted to a school of this caliber you have to work hard to distinguish yourself from the masses of similar candidates. You also have to realize that due to this competition, the actual acceptance rates are about half of what the overall acceptance rate is. So, to be direct, you are looking at very competitive schools and coming from a very competitive demographic.

With that said, I do not see a natural connection to HBS or Stanford -- you do not have the life and professional experiences they seem to value as of late. Your chances at the other schools are better, but they still have very low acceptance rates.

If you really want to transition to consulting, I recommend that you add a few less competitive schools to your list -- including Johnson, Ross and Darden -- students from these schools do very well in consulting recruiting.

Good luck.

Booth -- probably your best chance out of this very competitive list.
Wharton -- you have to work very hard to distinguish yourself from a very competitive candidate pool
Columbia -- the school does not have a fondness for IT professionals -- very status focused
Sloan -- your background speaks to them, but very competitive
Haas -- this is a very entrepreneurial school and they want people who have not followed a traditional career trajectory
Tuck -- the school looks for diversity and if you can show that you will add this to the school, then your candidacy has potential
Kellogg -- your second best chance from this very competitive list
