Thanks for reaching out to me. Quick question - Goals, what are they? I always like to say that an MBA is a bridge to your future goals - so what are your short and longer term goals?
Remember that your current experiences need to (in some way) support these goals (along with an MBA.) I would encourage you to start thinking about how your current experiences can support a future career, and then consider what schools have the strongest feeders into these industries. Remember that failure to clearly articulate these goals and the factors contributing to them are among the most common reasons for rejection. On that note - it is important to recognize the most underrated aspect of the admissions process, demonstrating fit.
Your current work and extracurricular experiences are good enough for a top 15 (at first glance), so are your GMAT and GPA. However, before I can give you a list of schools, you (and me) need to have a better understanding of your goals.
GMAT: 730 (Q50,V38)
Grad GPA: 3.4
