As the avg. GMAT range of these b-schools fall between 590-720, you’ll have fair chances of being accepted.

Hi Guys, I'm new to Gmat Club and was curious on any feedback you all can provide.Thanks!
1) Work Experience
3 years experience as a marketing consultant for an internet marketing firm focused on the legal industry. My primary function is generating new business and I've been ranked in the top 1% of the firm's sales force for the past two years.
Prior, I had 2 years experience in the same role at a firm focused on the financial advisor industry. Likewise, I was the #1 rated salesmen both years.
3) College info:
San Diego Christian College (business administration) - 3.93 gpa , dean's list all 8 semesters, graduated 2nd in Class, Business Major of Year.
4) extra-curricular activities or community service
college - founded the college's first Econ/Accounting tutoring program. (I oversaw as well as administered the tutoring)
post college - active in church (lead children's classes), captain of local men's basketball team
5) target programs.
Fuqua (early action), Kellogg, Marshall, Anderson
6) applying R1 2014-2015
7) post-MBA goals
I would like to work in product management, possibly for a company in the technology sector. I greatly enjoy the entrepreneurial nature of managing a product's life cycle from inception to execution and would like to use my mba to do this on a larger scale.
My problem- I feel that I have an atypical background from many other aspiring applicants. Though I've excelled in every environment, both academically and professionally, I lack the prestigious undergrad and blue chip work experience that is commonly seen in other top applicants. I've always been a big fish in a small pond and fear that I may not fit the mold. Can this be overcome?
