Part of the GPA situation will be your grades in quant courses – if these are OK to good, say B or higher – that will somewhat lessen the negative impact of the low GPA. Similarly, if your GMAT quant percentage was good, that too will help mitigate the GPA (and the 700 overall, while not stellar, is certainly solid).
As you surely know, your work is your standout element – both the nature of it and your excellent track record of promotion, impact, etc. And your goals build solidly on it. So in your essays
, make the most of it!
Given the above, if your quant grades and GMAT percentage are good, I consider your list of schools sound – as it should, it contains a reasonable reach (NYU), and an on-par (Georgetown), with Duke and UVA right in between. Good luck!
