Hello there my friend,
Nice to see a profile with a lot of REAL leadership. This is for sure your strongest point, and that coupled with a fantastic GMAT (congrats!) and excellent grades shows me an excellent all-around candidate. Extra-curriculars/volunteer work could be a bit stronger to round out your candidacy, and the founding of the Rotary club seems to be the strongest story you h ave, so use that as much as you can.

As for your target programs, all of good top programs (although I'm not 100% sure how you came up with the list, meaning what your criteria were for choosing THESE schools over other options like Columbia, Tuck, Duke, UNC... etc.) So if I understood a bit better than I could maybe share some thoughts about that. Otherwise, I think your school list is a bit on the tough side, but just a bit. Meaning with your grades, leadership and GMAT there's no reason for you not to apply to mostly Top 10-15 programs, but you could also find one more great "Safe school" that you really love for other reasons, to fill out your strategy and hedge your bets.

Looking gooooooood,

If you have anything else, let me know.
