Okay good sir,
From what you have written here, you have a kind of "middle-of-the-road" profile, but with an excellent GMAT, which will do you no harm at all. Good solid work experience of the right length, but a somewhat tough applicant pool to originate from.

Your list is a good one, although I wish there was one "Safety school" on it. If you ask me, I'd remove Booth from your list as being maybe too challenging, and NYU, as there are many other more appropriate schools for your industry. But otherwise you are in good shape, methinks.

Thanks Jon.
Do you think UNC, McCombs and Emory can be safe for me? I am not so sure if I really want to apply to Kelly.

Would really appreciate if you can mention some schools that I can consider as Safety schools.

Cheers!

I would say McCombs and UNC would lie between Safety and Competitive, so not a total Safety school, but one, which if you like, you can definitely add. Emory is a solid safety school IMHO...

Good luck to you!
