So given your score, academics and professional profile, I think your app would be considered at the schools you've listed. However do keep in mind that there will be a lot of applicants with similar backgrounds and profiles competing against you, so the more you can share what makes you who you are, interesting sides to your life and strengths, interpersonal and communication and leadership skills... the better. I am not well versed at the nuanced differences among your target programs beyond ISB and the top IIM options, but as you look at schools look at things such as:

-employment reports (critical!)
-curriculum-- consider which would best help you in your post-MBA goals!
-class size
-programs and projects and activities outside class
-geographical setting

And speak with students/alum at each for best feedback!
