Due to your age and work experience, you may want to look at HBS, who typically has a bias towards younger applicants. I think your application pool is deep, but your credentials should help you rise above and get noticed. I will caution you that high GMAT scores sometimes invites scrutiny of your personality and employability, so be prepared to address this if it comes up. As for school fit, you really need to visit your target schools to ascertain if their culture, community and academic environment meet with your expectations and seem like they fit. It would be difficult for me to tell you if LBS is a good fit without your visiting there. I can say it would be a good alignment with your goals and background if that helps.
