You have a strong profile, but yes lots of competition.  Now is the time to take who you are and make it shine on an application.  Your application in terms of what you write, how you craft your resume, and what kind of recommendations you get are critical to differentiating you from the competition.  You must craft what you say about yourself to set you apart.  It looks like you have some good experiences (extracurricular in particular) that would allow you to find these differentiation points.  You would be a good candidate for an admissions consultant to help guide what you communicate on your application.

I would apply to all of the top 10 schools, but be certain to communicate at each school exactly why it is an amazing fit for you in terms of where you want to get your MBA. Also be certain to explain why you need an MBA now.

Best of luck!
