With 5 years of international work experience in banking industry, consulting & IT, you should meet expectations for just about any program experience-wise. The key will be in weaving this experience into a narrative that ties into your long term vision and provides evidence it would be valuable to your classmates. Your GMAT is good, so no worries there, although it will be below average for some of your schools. It's hard to recommend schools for you without a more thorough analysis of your attributes since you hail from a "feeder" industry. You should target schools in the top tier (top 30) list, with the top 15 being stretch schools most likely and the 15-25 range right in your sweet spot. REverse engineer your school choices by deciding where you would like to work when you graduate and find out where those firms like to recruit.

Hi Bryan , the clients are based out of international locations , but I have never been to any of the locations , so i dont know whether that would count as International work experience, but yeah there have been extensive client visits almost every month and long ad hoc conversations over the last 2 years ever since I have moved to the consulting industry.
