Hey there dude,
so first of all congrats on your fantastic GMAT!!!! This will help a lot, esp. since your main concern is your GPA. I am also a wee bit concerned about the little work experience you have so far, but it does seem to be good, plus you have that GMAT. I just wonder how it will help you out in terms of stories.

Anyhow on to your school list. In order of most challenging to least, I think it should be: Tuck, Duke, NYA, Tepper, Darden, McCombs, KF, Mednoza (more or less). I think that you have a few tough schools on the list, but also schools where you would be competitive, so that your list is overall pretty reasonable, as long as you can make all the application in time (a challenge in of itself!)

So pretty good. Just carry on (and with fantastic essays), and you will have a shot dude,
