3) GRE: 339/340 (V: 170, Q: 169. Official ETS Conversion is to 800/800 on GMAT)

4) Work experience: Staff Software Engineer in San Francisco, CA. 5 promotions in 4.5 years.
Work in the Software R & D division of a leading technology company with a focus on Data Analytics, Machine Learning, Cybersecurity.

5) Extracurriculars: Involved with a non-profit working in the education sector for the last 4 years. Have a functionary role within the org.

6) Short/Long term goals: Strategy (maybe with a focus on Technology)

7) Schools: Wharton, MIT Sloan, Booth, Kellogg MMM, Columbia, Haas (EW-MBA)

8) Recommendations - 2 good recommendations from engineering managers (direct supervisors)

I currently have a well paying job where I am gaining good experience and I am wary of spending $130K on a Tier 2 MBA program.
At the same time, I understand that I come from an over-represented pool and do not have much to make my profile unique.
I am very interested in knowing whether there are any programs which will give higher weightage to my GRE/GMAT and Technology work experience (like the Kellogg MMM Program).
Greatly appreciate the support and guidance.

Thansk for sharing your profile. Really strong background with great measurables (GPA/GRE). As you stated your applicant pool is the only major thing holding you back. I think your thought process is spot on, a tier 2 probably does not make sense given your current situation. I would take your shot at the schools listed, I think you have chosen your schools well.
