Overall it looks good. I would guess (and hope!) that you are not applying in two days, but rather preparing yourself for next year. Briefly I would say that your school choice is solid, expect that I would add maybe two or three more to round out the choice and allow myself for the most options in terms of admits and scholarships when the time comes.
And since you have already visited our website, I would say give us another visit, and drop us a line, and we can get much DEEPER into your profile, once you give us a bit more info.

I actually am applying to USC round 2, ending this week. Do you think my work experience will hold me back from having a good chance? I feel like if I put off the MBA for another year, I'll just be looking for another job.

Hmmmm. I see.
Well, I don't think your work experience should harm you in any way, even if you haven't moved up, perhaps you have other great achievements.
