Doesn't appear to me that you would have the WE or professional achievement for HBS. I would delay another year or two and get some solid, progressively responsible work experience towards your target area. I realize you said the firms were not biting, but this is the same reasons the b-schools won't bite. I am afraid your story at this point would sound too much like you would be counting on b-school to be your savior and provide the access you are looking for into your dream job. B-schools generally don't like to be used as a vending machine and will vet out applicants who have not done the heavy lifting required to be appealing to recruiters on the backend. Now that I read this, it sounds harsh-it's not intended to be. you have done some incredible things and I think there are many parts of your profile which will be very attractve to b-schools, but in the end, the adcoms like a story that makes sense, so if your past experience and language skills seem to line up in a direction that you don't want to go, then you need to forge a new path first, then work b-school into the mix. You simply had the unfortunate experience of choosing a path that ended up not appealing to you, and now are stuck with righting the ship course.

you have a strong profile in many ways, one that would be attractive to schools in the top ten if you can revise your story to demonstrate that your post MBA vision is solid and your career progression has pointed you in the right direction. It's ok to change careers, so long as you have a believable story and conviction that you know where you are headed and why. As for which shcools, I would definitely stay in top 10--up to you which ones are good fit.
