I'm a similar profile to you..

3.1 GPA w/ a 740 GMAT. I work as a financial advisor at prestigious investment bank (but i'm not an investment banker by any means) which would be a comparably prestigious job to yours.

I targetted schools that are friendlier to lower GPAs. Dartmouth, Kellogg, Wharton, and Ross will all have your GPA outside of the middle 80%.

Schools that are friendlier to lower GPAs (assuming you can make up for it on the GMAT and w/ work experience):
Columbia, Chicago/Booth, Duke/Fuqua, UVA/Darden, Cornell/Johnson, UT/McCombs, Emory/Goizuetta.

Booth used to be friendlier to lower GPAs but now that their ranking is higher, they might be looking for higher caliber students too

EDIT: I guess what i'm trying to say is that you might want to include a safety school or two.

As long as you prepare high quality applications, I think your school selection is fine. Both applicants should have one or more acceptances from Top 15 schools.

Good luck,
