Hey gnurg
Thanks for getting in touch. What great stats! From that perspective, you are certainly very attractive. You don't mention your timeline but I am assuming you are applying like right now? If so, as an engineer, just remember to show a holistic picture of yourself. Highlight the soft skills too. It can be hard to get into programs just because you are good at C++. It's a leadership and management degree and schools want to see that you've got that. (Make sure your recommenders highlight these qualities and not just your tech skills.)
These programs are pretty competitive so you may want to also add Yale Silver Scholars and MIT Sloan to your list. Sloan will defer for current college students. (There's a line about this buried on their FAQ page. Give them a ring though for more info.)
I hope that helps and we wish you all the best on your apps!
Krista
