I believe that you would be a viable applicant to the programs of your choice, with stellar applications. Most would be reasonable reaches (Columbia a pretty high one). Your numbers (GPA and GMAT) are OK but not outstanding – they’re sort of neutral factors. But your work and other achievements are outstanding, and if you make the most of these experiences and achievements, you stand a good chance of admission to at least some of your target programs.
