Do you think I may be being extremely ambitious or what MBA programs would you recommend?
No, I don't think you're being overly ambitious. Based on the information you've given, you appear to be competitive with all the schools you've targeted; you're probably less competitive at MIT Sloan than the others.
I can't comment on your fit at these schools or suggest others because you've given no goals.

All of my experience has been in corporate finance, and I would really like to use my MBA to learn and get into investment banking. Post MBA I would like to continue in the finance world and try and get a job in the USA (I love Mexico, but the situation with the drug cartel war in Northern Mexico where Im from has just gotten to bad), be it corporate finance or investment banking. Si I am interested in a financially strong school with an alumni network that is heavily focused in the finance sector. I have also decided to add NYU Stern to my list. Any comments would be appreciated. Thank you very much.
