sivai87,

Among the schools you have listed, I would say the best shots are Alberta and Hult. Sauders, Nanyang, and Smeal have higher admission requirements (higher work ex, higher GMAT, more competition in the general pool) and would be more difficult. Rice, USC, UIUC, and Vanderbilt seem to be in the ones most difficult to crack in the list.

Your work experience is on the lower side. Also, you are an IT applicant and there will be much greater competition in this applicant pool. The general GMAT scores in this pool will also be usually higher.

Advice: Get some more work experience before you can target these schools. Also try to improve your GMAT score. 600 will render you less competitive at most of the places you mention. Try and get it up to around 650.
