Priyanka,

While you have a competitive profile (assuming your GMAT comes out as you anticipate), these are all tough schools. There are absolutely no safeties on your list. I suggest you also consider a few programs like Ross, UCLA, Darden, Wharton, and CMU Tepper. They all support your goals and are a little easier to get into.
