With only one year of work experience, you're going to have a tough time getting in anywhere, and more importantly, you'll have a tougher time recruiting even if you do get into b-school because you'll be competing against other more experienced MBAs for the same jobs (and they will have an advantage over you, even if they go to a lower ranked school).

Your best bet is to continue working for a few years before applying to b-school.
