Please recommend which universities should I target.
GPA and GMAT speak to your ability to handle business school academically, so your GMAT will compensate for your GPA to some extent. Extracurriculars don't say much about your academic preparedness. Your extracurriculars look good. You didn't mention your post-MBA goals so it's difficult to suggest specific schools, but based on what you gave me and using Business Week's top 20 I think you have a chance at Carnegie Mellon, Indiana, UNC Kenan-Flagler, and Texas.
