Requesting for evaluation of my chances at INSEAD, Kellogg 1Y and Stanford.

GRE: VR: 160; QR: 170 (Equivalent to 750 GMAT as per ETS) - if necessary, can take GMAT as well
LSAT : 95th percentile: Have admits from a couple of Top 15 law schools
Indian Male, 30 years at matriculation, Engineer from top 12 school (top 20% of class) and PGDM from top 4 school (exchange semester at AIT, Thailand) and top 30% in class
Certified Financial Risk Manager; CFA Level II candidate
Several single and double digit country ranks at aptitude exams and management entrance exams in India
Internships during Under-grad and grad at Siemens, BMW and nuclear and thermal power plants
Total work ex of 6 years (7 at matriculation)
3.5 years - Working at a very large Indian power company: started off with Project Finance working with US Exim on a 600Mn USD deal - helped close financing documents and obtain first disbursement.
Moved to Regulatory and policy advocacy role: Worked with industry associations to push for reforms in energy sector in India - responsible for many new policy reforms (as part of groups)
Filed multiple petitions in courts and helped company win lawsuits worth ~20Bn USD.
0.5 year - Assisted the chairman of another large power company in regulatory and policy related works
Last 2 years - co-founded a renewable energy company (consulting and project management work) now backed by PE and traditional lenders; team of about 50 now with experience of reviving stranded hydro projects and setting up many rooftop solar projects.
Goal: Plan A: grow network to join a start up or directly start a renewable energy company; Plan B: move to a top consult in energy practice in US; Plan C: work with a large power/energy company (not sure if that is possible as an international). Second MBA to expand network and reach out to entrepreneurs.
Extra-currics - Lots of teaching to underprivileged students, set up infra for villagers through our company (not as CSR), set up blood donation camps, many Club president etc work at college and grad school; debating, editorial board,scuba diving and quizzing.
Other factors: From a poor background, can speak four Indian languages fluently, overcame alienation as a child.
LOR: Should manage to get good ones from my past employers.
Thanks,

Thanks,
I see best odds at INSEAD, I think Kellogg 1YR shows promise if you put together a strong application and Stanford is honestly just a crap shoot. with 6% odds- not sure anyone can say anyone has a great shot- but if you can tell a compelling story about what matters most to you... that is the best shot. I see nothing here that would keep you from buying a lottery ticket and joining in the fun of applying. We can help challenge you to tell your most compelling story- and would be glad to do a free consult with you to explain more of how we can help and here is that link: https://stratusadmissionscounseling.com ... b-visitor/
