I would really appreciate it if you could give me an idea of how confident (or not) I should be of my admission to Harvard, Stanford, or Wharton.

Here are my stats:
School: Penn / Columbia
Major(s): Chemistry and Economics; Math minor
GPA: 3.95
GMAT: 760

I am about to start working for a top bulge bracket (think Goldman or Morgan) in their healthcare banking group in the Bay Area.
After my two years of banking, I would like to go into private equity (Megafund such as TPG, Carlyle if the opportunity arises).

I was very involved with chemistry research until my junior year, which was when I focused much more on economics and business. I won the Goldwater Scholarship for my research, on top of a Howard Hughes fellowship and others.
My "niche" seems to be in healthcare, although I wouldn't mind a more generalist experience at some point in my career.
I am involved with animal rights organizations, but I have not been that devoted to it over the past four years (excluding helping out with a few fundraisers).

I'll stop now, because I'd really appreciate if you could tell me (given the above info) what kinds of things I should focus on over the next few years to strengthen my candidacy.
