You have the core credentials for a run at these very selective schools, but it is always an uphill battle when you hail from a crowded applicat pool where good academics and a high GMAT are the norm. One thing working in your favor is that data analytics and big data are super hot spots right now, so it's likely you would be viewed as someone who could offer something different in the classroom. You shoul talk about why you like this kind of work and how it would be useful in a classroom setting, particularly if not a lot of other students understand the space. Your post MBA vision needs refinement. B-schools like to see that you have a pretty clear idea of where you will end up both right out of school and longer term. This demonstrates maturity, a key attribute for top applicants. Wharton, Booth and Columbia will be a stretch, jsut based on the competitivenes of the overall applicant pool in recent years, but no reason why you should skip them. You never know when your story will strike the right chord.
