Many thanks for your comments
While your GMAT is excellent and highly competitive, I'm afraid that your relative lack of work experience and mediocre college record will hurt your chances at Tuck. Certainly with a 750, I can't say that you don't have a chance, but I'm not optimistic.
Look into Chicago, Columbia, NYU, and UCLA.
