You definitely have a good profile. You're not from the highest tier of undergrad institutions but you have a great professional background. Your GMAT score, however, is a little below average for your applicant pool so that'll a small anchor on your chances. I think your goals make sense - finance to consulting with a financial focus is realistic and high profile enough to make it worthwhile. However, they're still fairly generic so from a school selection perspective, you're now looking to softer factors. At the end of the day, you need pedigree to make the transition to a top tier firm so you're looking at top 10/15. However, given what I mentioned above, the very top will be stretches (H/S/W). I think you should throw in one application to one of those three but you should really focus in on the #4 - 14. You can create a pretty strong portfolio with a balance of risk while applying to quality institutions that'll help you get that job you want. If you're thinking about waiting to apply next year, then bumping up that GMAT would be a great idea!
