I'd say you have a pretty strong profile. You have a histroy of rapid advancement and have taken on lots of responsibility on the job. ALso good numbers, etc. (although the job stuff is more valuable).

I'd say the biggest hole in yoru app is community involvement / leadership outside of work. This isn't a deal breaker, but adcomms may ask questions about this. To overcome it, be sure to really emphasize your leadership experiences at work, using your well-rounded experience (on the business side) to your advantage.

I think your list of schools is good. Also maybe consider Duke, since they have a strong healthcare program.
