I am relatively ignorant about the b-school process and am trying to figure out where I should apply.
Relevant stats: 29 yr old/male/caucasian Attended top 20 undergraduate school (Poly Sci major) and top 5 law school, graduated with mildly above average GPAs from both 760 GMAT, 5 AWA 1.5 years work experience top 30 law firm .5 years teaching LSAT (current job) Passed CFA level I while in law school, have not yet taken level II Started business in law school that was based on my law school thesis.
I believe I would enjoy business significantly more than I enjoy law. I intend to focus on finance and entreprenuership.
What schools do I have a good shot at? At which schools are my pickings slim? And is my work experience what would keep me out of the top schools?

Your stats are very impressive and good enough for any bschool on paper. I think the toughest roadblock you will have are the essays and interviews. You will need to have compelling reasons for why you went to law school and why you are deciding to go to bschool so soon after graduating from law school. You will also need to have a concrete idea of what you plan to do with your MBA degree. A lot of bulge bracket consulting firms and banks recruit from top law schools, so you're planning to go recruit for those positions you'll need to explain why you didn't go into them straight after law school. If you can't formulate a good response to these question then you might be seen as flighty and simply applying to grad schools because you're don't have a clear career goals.
