I plan on applying to business school in fall of 2012 for admittance in fall of 2013. Just trying to get a handle on places that I may have a chance of gaining admittance to.

Personal Information: 25 (27 at matriculation), male, Caucasian
GMAT: 680, 6.0 AWA
Undergraduate: Public Ivy (Big Ten)
Double Major: Finance/Entrepreneurship
GPA: 3.57

Work Experience:
16 months - Trust Company/Wealth Management Division
2 years (currently) - Peace Corps (East Africa) working as a Health/Economic Development Volunteer. Most of my projects will involve the health sector, but given my background, I will likely put a business/economics twist on many of them. One of my potential projects is working with the local People Living With HIV/AIDS Association (PLWHAs) to start a microfinance institution that would lend to PLWHAs who are otherwise unable to obtain financing to start small businesses here in my town.

Although my GMAT score is on the low side for elite business schools, I feel that my academic background/work experience may make me an attractive candidate. In particular, I am wondering what my chances would be for H/S/W, Kellogg, Booth, Ross, Darden, Babson, etc. Is admittance to these institutions even within the realm of possibilities?

Thanks.
