Really look forward to your inputs
I'm assuming you are applying for 2014 or already applied. You have a chance at all the programs. Wharton is a stretch, mainly because it's Wharton. You are competitive at the other programs you listed above and are applying appropriately. Unless you really want the U.S. MBA experience and given your emerging market focus, you may also want to consider ISB.
Acceptance is less likely at all the programs if you are applying from abroad for round 3.
If you would like help with your MBA application,
please let me know.
