You have some great stuff here! I mean I would love to know more about your profile so we can really dig in and see what we can pull out of it, but basically with a 750 plus so much REAL leadership and responsibility, there is no reason for you to apply to schools out of the top 10. I feel you are are Top school material.

Make sure your goals make sense in terms of the leadership experience you have already gathered, and if you have some great essays and great recommendations, you should have a real shot at the best of schools (including all those on your list). Otherwise, emphasize HARD on your leadership (I LEAD a team of 540!!! (indirect leads count too!) ) Love it.

(I love being the bearer of good news :) )
Cheerio.
