You have a strong profile for someone your age and you should be able to aim high. Assuming that "M7" means the top 7 ranked B-schools, I don't think that HBS and Stanford are quite realistic. Given your goals, you could target the following highly ranked entrepreneurship progams: Wharton, MIT, Haas, UCLA and many more lower-ranked schools.
