dharmabum,

Yes, though you have an impressive profile, I don't think HBS or Stanford are likely. I could mention other schools you could target but would need some sense of your goals.

I would really like to work for a company that does something to make the world a better place, while making money at the same time. Something like working in solar energy or developing infrastructure in the emerging markets. I realize that I would fine tune this a bit before application season.

If I could retake the GMAT and get my score above 750, would that have any affect on my admit chances at HBS?

Here is the list of schools that I'm considering at this point:

HBS
Tuck
CBS
Kellogg
GSB
SOM
Darden
Ross

Would you make any additions or subtractions?

dharmabum,

Sorry for the delayed reply. Raising your score from a 730 to a 750 would not have a measurable effect on your chances. Your profile is a good one and has some distinctive elements, but I just don't see a strong enough leadership track record for HBS. I wonder if you could start some successful entrepreneurial venture on the side while you complete your Teach for America gig? The other schools you list are all good programs given your social impact goals, but here again I think you may be overreaching with Columbia, Tuck and perhaps Kellogg. Other strong social impact programs you might consider are Haas (though also a longshot), Cornell, UNC, and NYU. You are aiming high so I recommend spending the next year and half ramping up your profile in terms of impact and leadership.

Hope this helps.
