I think you chose the right range of schools.

Columbia, Chicago -- stretch (but give them a try anyhow; they aren't long shots; with a bit of luck and strong execution you have a chance).

Cornell, Yale, NYU -- sweet spots; you should be competitive for these range of schools

Texas -- safety; you should be able to get in unless you run into really bad luck

With these range of schools and dedication on the applications, you should be able to get into a few schools. Good luck

Thanks a lot for your response. I actually thought Yale, Cornell, NYU will be stretch for me but good to hear that I stand a chance.

Right now my biggest worry is ofcourse that I might be lacking work experience and is on the younger side, which might hurt me in recruiting. So what do you think if I wait another year and apply next year?

Do you think it will increase my chances at these school by a great deal? or just marginal?

You are on the younger side, but if you feel you're ready, by all means go for it this year. The worst that can happen is that you reapply next year (and no, being a reapplicant isn't a big deal).
