Looks like a solid foundation to me. If you're set on going to a MBA program this cycle, you might want to open up the deck with some schools that are a little easier to get into than Haas and Sloan. Assuming you want to stay with finance, Cornell would be a great addition. Wharton would be a solid addition here I think over Haas or Sloan.

In Sandy speak, I'm not sensing much stardust here. You might play up how difficult it was to transition from IT to Research, and what your significant impact was, because that your only star card from what I can see. But again, looks really solid, you should have a chance to be in the mix.

Good back-ground. You have a strong story if your goal is to stay in Finance. GMAT is in the ball-park, so no worries.
However, I would strongly suggest that you work on extra-curricular activities – be a financial advisor to non-profits, better still if you hold a CFO position and do something remarkable to a budding non-profit.

You should apply to Wharton too. I’m a student at Haas, so feel free to reach out if you need help.
