Thanks for the posting.

Based on your background, I would say that with a competitive application that you will be a strong candidate at all of the schools listed. Ideally, I would like for your GMAT score to be higher as the higher your score the more this will offset your grades. Also, you do not mention your TOEFL score, which you will have to take. Again, the higher your score the easier your life will be with admissions.

in your application, make sure that you highlight your international experience as well as fully develop your career goals. Also, choose your recommenders carefully and make sure they speak of your abilities and potential.

Good luck.
