Hello,

I’d consider you to be a viable candidate for the schools you mention, in varying degrees. Duke would be an on-par level program for you, I believe. All the others would be reasonable reaches, with Stanford being at the outer edge of “reasonable.” (Years ago the 710 GMAT would have sufficed fine, but these days it’s actually low for Stanford).

Obviously your career and experience are key differentiating factors, to optimize in your applications. Also, in thegoals essays, be specific, focused, and present an informed case for why and how you will pursue your goals.

Have you looked at MIT Sloan? It might be a good fit, to either replace a school on your list or to add.
