Assuming you attended a college known for rigor, you have a competitive profile for your target programs. You may also want to consider Tuck, Duke and Yale. You are right about your strengths.

It's very hard for me to advise you in a forum post on what to include in your resume, except to say that I would not include anything from high school.

If you would like help with your MBA application, please check out Accepted's services.

Best,
Linda
