Thanks in advance for taking the time to evaluate my profile. Could you possibly
(1) Evaluate my profile along with my chances at schools targeted?
(2) Suggest some areas to improve on before applying and some other schools to consider?

For reference, I am thinking of applying for Fall 2014 matriculation.

Education- BS Biomedical Engineering w/ Emphasis in Mechanical from top 20 Engineering Program GPA: 2.9 Major GPA: 3.1. Absolutely was not prepared for college (study habits, etc.) and had a 2.4 in my Freshman year. Improved after that and had a 3.4 my final and toughest semester.

GMAT- 730 (Q: 49, V:41, AWA: 6.0)

Work Experience: Current Position is as Analyst in F500 Corp Finance and have received a promotion in my 1 year here, before that I had 1 year exp as Design Engineer at small Tech/Defense firm. Also have 2 summers of boutique Private Equity internship.

International Work Experience: Not a whole lot right now. But may be traveling soon to Asia and/or Central America for meetings.

ECs:
-Involved in small volunteering opportunities in college
-Now involved with Boys & Girls Club as well as Acumen Fund-like non-profit

You should be able to get invited by at least some of the schools on your target list. Your WE is going to come in a little short on length, but it seems as if you have had progressvie responsibility. Make sure you can articulate what kind of value you can bring to your classmates based on what you have achieved professionally. Good GMAT, upward trend in grades. Top 20 BME (they consider the rigor of your program, so in your case, you should be in good shape). Good involvement. Overall, I think you have a strong profile and one that will capture the attention of your targest list. With a well crafted application package, I would expect someone with a profile similar to yours to find acceptance. Can't say specifically which school, because you can never know for sure.
