i'd say you got the right schools in NYU and Chicago. they'll be able to take you to where you want to go career-wise. when applying, i'd suggest you get super crisp on your work experience. it's a bit hard to follow the way you've described it, and it feels very technical/jargon-y. Take it to common sense language and get clear on your career goals. it's not enough to say you want to be in the hedge fund industry. you'll need to say why and how. what is it about your background that makes this career path plausible for you?
It's very limited data to work from, but these are where i see your challenges and opportunities.
hope that's helpful
