Your GPA is great and your role in the fast-track professional program is a plus. As soon as it puts you in a position to make strategic decisions (and not just technical decisions) for organizations - either clients or internally for your own company - then you will be able to demonstrate that you have the leadership ability to match your obvious intelligence and previous extracurricular leadership. You may be making those kinds of decisions and influencing people above you in the organization already. If so, then a 720 or higher GMAT would be your target score for the likes of Columbia and Stern.
I also recommend you consider Master of Information Systems Management programs like Carnegie Mellon's, UC Berkeley's, and NYU's. These are degrees that combine technology and business management.
