This will be somewhat speculative as some of the numbers are either estimates, or what I consider to be "doable" goals. This is due to the fact that I am still probably at least 3 years away from applying to schools, but would still like to have an idea of what type of schools I should be shooting for and where I can improve my application. But, anyway, here goes.

Age: 26
Languages: Conversational Spanish and Mandarin Chinese, Written Latin
GMAT: 720 - this is a goal as of now, I am without a true diagnostic to speculate accurately, so this could be higher or lower.
LSAT: 172

B.S. Economics, University of Iowa
GPA: 3.58

Work Experience
1. Iowa City Law Firm - Office Assistant (Summer)
2. MGM/Mirage - Internship (Summer)
3. Exxon Mobil - International Internship (Summer)
1. (not sure what will go here - looking at Fortune 500, Las Vegas Casinos, and/or International work)

President, Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity
Member, Phi Beta Lamda
Member, UI Mock Trial Team

Community Involvement
Volunteer, WiderNet (working to improve tech. in Africa)
Volunteer, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America

Why an M.B.A.?
I am actually looking for a J.D./M.B.A. dual-degree program that would benefit me in regards to both the legal and business worlds. I am currently unsure which route I will follow, but would not mind working in Big Law for a few years after graduate school, before going on to work in the corporate world. But, then again, if I were to excel in one area over another and receive a good enough offer, I might find my way. There is also the chance that I would start my own firm, which would benefit significantly from the dual-degree.

Target Schools
Harvard, Wharton, Stanford, Columbia, UT-Austin, UCLA, Boston College, USC, U. of Chicago, Ohio State, U. of Washington - I haven't narrowed it down much. This list includes a few reach schools, but most of these take into account both Law and Business schools at the respective campuses.

Thanks for your help in advance!

Thanks for the post. I didn't see anything that was a huge red flag for you not being competitive in the future. Just be on the look out for great leadership opportunities as you move into your full-time career.

Also, consider the JD/MBA thing carefully. It costs you an additional 2 years over the MBA alone and for what purpose? In other words, try to make sure that you'll use them both. Entrepreneurship is the obvious area where both can be invaluable. There a few others too of course.
