Yes I think you definitely have a shot at these programs. Outside the MBA, the post graduate finance degrees do not require the same kind of professional work experience. What they do require is demonstrated leadership and top academic performance. Since you have both of these in spades in your background, I feel you would be strongly considered as a candidate for your target degrees. One thing you did not detail is your post graduate professional vision, so make sure you spend some time honing this important part of the application. Maturity is critical to demonstrate especially for programs like these who take in students fresh out of undergrad, and nothing speaks maturity like having a tight plan for your life. Not sure if you have considered academia as a career, but frankly your credentials and top test score indicates an aptitude for PhD track and professor. Before you balk at the idea, recognize that business School professors are among the most highly paid in the world, along with law and medicine. Half a million in compensation and summers off is not unusual at all for top professors at top schools. Hope this helps.

No--Bs are good grades. Perhaps c's and D's would need explanation, but there is never a need to apologize for b's.
