Your applicant pool is competitive, but I think your target schools are achievable, even though your WE is going to be less than average number of years. Certainly will be very competitive for MIM programs, and I think also for the MBA programs too. As for school selections, you have a strong enough profile to be choosing schools where you think you fit culturally--all top schools will give you the access to top consulting recruiters, so go where you feel you fit the best and also perhaps with some geographic consideration for where you want to end up in the short term post MBA. We have specialists who graduated from all your target schools, so don't hesitate to let us help you if you decide to go the consulting route.
