mary1234,
Based only on the info you provided, you would be overreaching at these 4 schools, except Cornell, even assuming a ~700 GMAT score. Though B-schools are more open to younger applicants than they used to be, they also hold them to a high bar in terms of qualifications / leadership / impact. Your GPA is fine. There may be -- and probably is -- more to your profile than this, so please feel free to send my your CV/resume for a closer look: paulbodine@yahoo.com.

Based on what you provide here, I would recommend that you re-evaluate your list of schools. All four of these schools are very competitive and while you are competitive on many fronts, I do not see competitive level qualifications on some of the more important fronts (especially work experience). However, just becuase you seem to be over-reaching on the schools that you are targeting, there are many great programs which you would be considered a very strong candidate.

Good luck.

What if I got the CFP and CFA level 1 certificate, will it be helping me get into the graduate school?

Not that much. Too many people have level 1. If you got level three, maybe a bit. But there are more important things.
