You are obviously doing well and a great team member and leader, but from this profile I'm not seeing the kind of leadership above you that I would like to for a school like Fuqua or Ross, and I see McCombs as a bit of a stretch as well. Global consultancy firms will typically want to see GMAT scores over 700. I would recommend applying slightly lower in the rankings (Texas A&M does solid recruiting in consulting, for example) and even trying to boost the GMAT while you are in the program to ease your recruiting process.
