Certainly apply to those two if you want, but you should also look at other schools as well no matter how strong your profile - they're difficult to get in no matter what.

As for how to improve your profile - to be honest, I really don't like telling people how to manufacture their resumes or profile for the purposes of b-school - it's ass backwards and frankly the most impressive and accomplished people I've dealt with through this process are those who aren't driven by b-school admissions (i.e. they are accomplishing things for their own sake, rather than for the purposes of manufacturing a profile for b-school). You seem to have an interesting profile, so continue doing what you're doing, working/achieving to your full potential -- in any case, you won't have much time to do anything else anyhow since you're in banking right now.
