Dinesh-

despite your high academic achievements (with even an Ivy League MS degree !), your core profile will come across as fairly average. Yes your GMAT score is great, but so will be every other Indian IT applicant's GMAT. I think your 3+ years of WE may come up a little shorter than some of your competition, and what concerns me is that you are basically targeting only the very highest ranked schools in the US. You might consider three reach schools and a couple of lower ranked schools as well to ensure your success in the application process. The key will be in casting a strong vision for why you want to switch careers, and why you have not sought finance or consulting opportunties thus far. You risk coming off as immature if you don't have a compelling story behind this question. Hope this helps.
