Well other than your school everything else is in order.. you have a fantastic GMAT, great grades, you are a STEM graduate, (and female!) and have good internships (and are ambitious!). I think yes you can mention the money issue in your essays, and I think at this point just going for HBS/Stanford is fine. MAke the best application you can, try, and see what happens. It's a long shot for everyone, buuuuut if you don't make it in, there's always the regular MBA :)

If you have any follow-up questions, just let me know.

It's a nice logic, but it doesn't really work like that. It's better to come from a fantastic university as HBS really is very meritocratic sometimes. With the 2+2 program, they are looking for people mostly who wouldn't normally necessarily get an MBA otherwise, which is why so much of their class are STEM applicants (otherwise for finance and business people, the regular program seems better for them), but still, take your shot, and see what happens. But don't worry about your university. It is what it is. Right now your job is to make the best application possible.

Thank you Amissionado! I guess I will just not mention it.. try to do my best on the rest of the application and see how it goes.
