In short, yes, you have a chance. You have a good background and solid numbers. Obviously, Kellogg and Booth are the top of the top, and you'll have to turn in a flawless application to beat out the other MCs who would like to gain entry. Showcase your leadership ability as well as your extracurricular activities to demonstrate how you can make a difference not just in a professional setting, but also in the society. With good letters of rec, I can't see a reason you not getting in a top b-school. Just to maximize your chances, you may want to just put in one or two more schools; however, if you're keen on staying put at the midwest (seeing how your schools are all sort of in the mid-west), go for these and just hope for the best. Again, I think you have a decent shot at getting admitted into at least one of the three, as long as you have decent letters, good essays, leadership ability in/out of work.
