Your profile seems solid for the schools you selected. Make sure you continue to demonstrate leadership capabilities at work and through extracurricular activities.
Also you need to get clarity around your short-term and long-term goal. To work as a business analyst post MBA may seem like you're going after a job you can get now without an MBA. Research actual job postings and look at the job requirements and conduct informational interview of people holding these jobs to understand what skills are important for succeeding in such roles. And know why you want such job, what interest you, how does it match up with your strengths and passion. http://marveladmissions.com/the-power-i ... eer-goals/
