I think you're accurate in your assessment in terms of your chances at these schools. You didn't mention where your work experience is exactly, but you have a good list of clients & assuming you have some clear impact to show in your work with them I think you have a solid application!

Good company & there are not tons of applicants coming from telecom, which is a good thing. You are on the upper end in terms of work experience, which can make the adcom nervous, so you'll just want to make sure you have a very strong "why MBA/why our school" argument. That argument also rests in large part of your goals - you want to paint a picture of the impact you plan to have in the future & the skill gaps you need to fill via the MBA to get there.

Good luck to you!
