vbalex,

You certainly have a distinctive profile, both professionally and internationally, which will help you. On the other hand, your GMAT score and age will be a problem at some schools, and it's not clear that the magnitude of your leadership and impact in and outside of work is strong enough for the top schools on your list. So I would say that Stanford is not doable. Haas, Kellogg, and MIT will be longshots. You should have a solid to good chance at the remaining schools: Rochester, Oxford, RSM (Rotterdam), IMD, Cranfield, Manchester, Bocconi, IESE, IE, ESADE, ESMT.

Hope this helps,
