As I am sure you have realized, your profile is very common and your application pool is very deep. This is a bad combination. A 710 GMAT is a good score to be sure, but will be average in your applicant pool. If looking for US schools, I would target the lower end of the top tier (top 25) and 6-8 schools as you indicate is a good strategy. I would do half in round 1 and the other half in round 2. Try to focus on the things in your experience base which are different from the next guy who has a similar profile on paper. You must find a way to stand out from the crowd, since your acheivements are very similar to thousands of other applicants.
