Shoooooot.
With a 710, a 4.0, work in a top hedge fund, and being female (it helps!) you have a good setup behind you.
I would apply to a good mix of schools with strengths in Finance, some a bit harder to get into, some easier: Wharton, Harvard, MIT, Chicago (those were the harder ones), Columbia, NYU (a bit easier), Johnson, UNC (and a bit easier than that).

Do you think you'd be able to geta post MBA return offer from your employer? since you wanna stay in industry, it could help out. And it could be really nice for you.
