Your candidacy looks excellent. You truly are strong in most every area that an AdCom looks for. Although I do wonder if at work you have a leadership role, which would be a helpful metric to also cover. Your profile checks off most all of the boxes I would look for in a strong candidate to any of the top-20 US business schools. Be sure that you: 1- tell a compelling story for why you need an MBA and why now?; 2- what differentiates you; 3- start working on some great recommendations, people who you work for/with that will represent you as an excellent candidate.

That said, I would look into all of the top-20 programs to see which resonates with you best. I attended The Tuck School at Dartmouth and the curriculum is general management so you might start there and see what you think. Tuck was a wonderful experience, although the school is located somewhat remotely; my Indian classmates seemed to enjoy it greatly. You could go into general/project management out of any of the top schools as they are all highly recruited for those positions, so I would apply to many and see who can give you the best package. The lower ranked schools will be more inclined to give a better package, so that is a trade-off that you will have to consider- better brand name or scholarship.

Best of Luck!
