Current age 30
Gmat: 700 (has 2 repeats)

a Bachelor of Engineering degree from a reputed University in India.

More than eight years experience one of the top five IT companies in the world. Currently working as Project Manager. Strong analytical skills coupled with good leadership qualities. I am an avid reader and is actively involved in investing. My hobby is to invest in small budding companies in stock market.

I also have some exposure to NGO.

Why MBA and why now
My carrer has been very progressive and I have got promoted every other year. I am at a juncture where I am excelling in my current job, which is technology consulting. My present job has given me right foundation in terms of leadership and managerial skills, business, technical and domain knowledge to move to next.
From technology consulting to business consulting. Specifically into strategy...

My schools of choice are (in order of preference)
Chicago
Columbia
Wharton
Michigan Ross
NYU
Tuck
Cornell

Do I have a chance with these schools?

Yes you have a shot, but I would recommend that you cut back to about four schools, so that ayou can really understand them and craft you applications specifically for them rather than simply copying and pasting your essays.

It can help... If you're passionate about it, explaing WHY... This can help you stand out from a very crowded applicant pool. But you'll need to really focus on anything else that can help make you look unique vs. other applicants. Your NGO experience may help here.
