Your profile is good, and unfortunately also commonplace in several regards, so I agree with you that school selection is important. We actually have a nice school evaluation tool on our website that may be of help. From your list, I would point you in the direction of Stretch : Kenan-Flagler (good about admitting high percentage of Indian students), Competitive : Wash U. (Olin), Vanderbilt, possibly Kelley. (GA tech is too small--only 75 students per year and therefore very selective, not admitting many international students).
Safe: Boston College (Carroll), Purdue are good bets. The key will be how you position yourself vs. other Indian IT applicants, and the best way to do this is to make the application very personal, with stories and a strong vision for how you will make the transition into i-banking. If you do this, and connect your past with your future in a compelling way, you should be pleased with the results. We can do a full evaluation on the phone for you (free) if you contact us through our website or phone number.
