From the information provided, I believe you would be qualified for HBS and LBS; INSEAD is questionable considering that you’re on the young side for that program and also (at least so far) don’t bring international experience. Your stats are good (the somewhat low GPA shows a strong upward trend, which is important), and your work experience looks strong, especially the leadership/management aspect. A key missing element in your profile is your goals. The goals must fit (directly or indirectly) into the whole to create a coherent message/story/presentation.

Keep in mind, when I say you are qualified for HBS and LBS, I still consider them reaches.
