I would appreciate it if you could provide some feedback regarding my choice of schools. Specifically (1) My chances at them and (2) whether these schools are what you would advise someone with my profile and interests to apply to. Areas of interest include strategic technology consulting and product/brand management. Tks a mill.

A little personal background:

GMAT - 680 (Q-46, V-38, AW-5.0, Percentile - 89%)

MS in Computer Science from USC, GPA - 3.96

BS in Computing from Coventry University, UK, GPA - 3.8 (1st Class Hnr)

Work Experience - 5 Years - HP and Microsoft

Current Job Role - Mix of strategic planning and project management. I evaluate the features offered by other Internet content publishing systems, propose and design features that would offer greater customer value-add and differentiate my team's product from others in the market. I don't simply propose "lofty" ideas but technically feasible ones that have product differentiating value. I also do the ground work of managing project schedules and technical/marketing teams that are both local and out-sourced

Why do an MBA - Much that I have learned today about product management and approving features based on their strategic worth has been on the job. An MBA offers me an opportunity to develop a more formal skillset to do the same thing with greater emphasis on the business as a whole rather than just at the product level.

Your choice of schools looks pretty appropriate, but it's hard to evaluate your chances without knowing what kind of extracurriculars / community service / hobbies you have. The more competitive the school, the more critical these things are when it comes to setting you apart. But I think your expectations are pretty realistic.
