While we are happy to answer questions in addition to profile evaluations, profile evaluations seem to be pretty popular. Here is the information we need not necessarily in order of importance:

1) WE: 3 years of experience as a market analyst for a large CPG fortune 500 company.
2) GMAT: 710
3) College info: University of Minnesota (Carlson), 3.7 GPA, Marketing & MIS double major. Graduated in 2009.
4) In college I was 3-year President for campus American Marketing Association as well as serving various other leadership roles in clubs including Habitat for Humanity. Above average involvement in community service. Post-graduation not as involved, still continue to volunteer and have lead small groups both at work and at my local church.
5) Target programs: Duke/Michigan/Cornell/Virginia. But wondering what my chances would be at Northwestern/Penn/Chicago and how much of a "reach" school they would be.
6) I have always wanted to be a Brand Manager, so ideally my MBA would allow me advancement in the field of Marketing. I would like to move back to the midwest (hopefully Minnesota!) post-MBA, so a school with national as opposed to regional prestige is important to me.

Thanks for your post.

You are applying appropriately given your goals and qualifications and are competitive at your target schools. Good job.

I see no harm in trying to apply to a Wharton or Kellogg. They would be stretch programs, but nothing you say below leads me to believe you can't get in, and nothing convinces me that you are highly competitive at these programs. If the possibility of attending one of those schools outweighs the possible sting of rejection and you're willing to do the application work, go for it.
