Go for it. In your case, if you can score well on the GMAT (for the schools you're talking about, 600+ and ideally 650+), you should be able to get into those schools like Baruch, Pace, Fordham.
How you stand out comes down to HOW you communicate who you are in the essays, rec letters and interview. It's finding a way to allow your personality, color, humor, etc. come out in the applications -- and trusting that that's enough to engage a reader, and to have that reader see you as an individual. You don't need to have bizarro experiences if you can communicate in a clear, specific, and personable way.
