Any insight would be most valuable.

1.) 30 y/o, white male. 7.5 years WE in US Army Special Forces (Green Berets); multiple combat tours, awards, decorations, etc.

2.) GRE + 164V/161M/5.5 AE (=710GMAT?)

3) 3.28ugpa @ Cornell; Major in English.
Also, I have a handful of postgrad credits in writing courses @ UC Berkeley & UCLA Extensions.
And I worked full-time throughout undergrad.

4) 2 Combat Deployments to Afghanistan; multiple deployments to other locations. Consistently promoted ahead of peers.

6) Target schools = HBS, SBS, Yale SOM & Sloan.

Is my GPA going to be a big problem? Also, should I explain why I opted for the GRE rather than the GMAT? Thanks in advance for the help.

GRE is becoming more acceptable, so I wouldn't worry about it, but you might want to pick a couple of more schools a little furhter down the food chain just in case. B-schools love military guys and your profile should be strong, but your schools are all top drawer,so one or two safety schools could help ensure your admission an also get you some scholarship offers.
