Expert's post

Your target programs are all excellent for your goals, and would be great fits for you. That said, while you have many strengths, I’d consider all except HEC to be reaches, albeit reasonable reaches. (If you could bump up the GMAT a tad, it would make them even more reasonable reaches.)

I suggest really making the most out of your experience in your application, with vivid discussions of your insights and growth, and how it shaped your goals. That will help distinguish you and demonstrate your prospective contributions to the programs.
