You have a good profile. Though your GPA is low, your high GMAT will compensate that. You have good college names. Attend the MBA tour in NY this weekend. Columbia is attending as well.
Your profile lacks leadership experiences. Most of your roles seem to be individual centric. Let me know if thats not the case. Your target schools look for strong leadership roles. You should also focus on the 'extra curricular activities' area on your resume.
I think you should stretch yourself and go above the Columbia/Stern level. Aim high. Explore Harvard and MIT as well. They are better placed to help you on your goals. Good luck!www.InterviewBay.com

Hi, I am considering applying to B school in the next year or so, was wondering what my chances were
Female, 25, white
Majors: religious studies, chemistry
ECs: VP membership, transition officer of my sorority
Grad school: Johns Hopkins School of Public Health
Degree: MSPH in health policy and management
Pfizer for 1 yr as worldwide policy analyst
Mid-sized pharma consulting firm for 1 yr as consultant
SAT/ACT tutoring in free time for 3 yrs
(previous internships include research at NYU & hospital in Mexico city, AMA, major science/policy think tank in DC)
I'd like to stay in/near NYC- would columbia and/or stern be possible schools? I'd like to take my MBA back to pharma industry, rather than the consulting side
