gotigers,

You gave me the bare-bones data, and, as you know, you will need to work in some strong personal & community stories (and I do mean stories, not just facts) to break into the top schools, but based on what I have I would say Stanford and Tuck would be very long shots (assuming you have nothing really strong/unusual that you failed to mention). You have a shot at the remaining schools, that is, they lie somewhere between "competitive" and "long shot" for you in my opinion. This is a conservative estimation on my part since I don't know your story. If there's something compelling about your personal or professional story your odds at these schools would improve. Anderson and Yale might be your best shots. There's nothing "wrong" with your profile, I just don't see the distinctiveness than be help you stand out -- break out of the pack.

Good luck,
