Thank You !!!
You certainly have a shot at all the programs on your list if your get that 730+, but HBS, MIT, and Stanford are unlikely. You may have a much stronger chance at an MiF program like MIT or other top US MiF programs.
Perhaps it makes more sense for you to get the top MS in Finance first with a strong GPA and then apply for the MBA.
Thank You for the feed back, I will take note of those mentioned.
