Hi leonine,

The information you have written looks fantastic. A note I want to make is that the business schools you are targeting are looking to cultivate leaders, so it will be important that you discuss your leadership experience throughout your applications. Your personal essays and recommendations will also be critical, as they will need to properly portray your personal brand.

Here is some school specific advice for the programs you are looking at:
