You didn't give your age, but HBS likes younger candidates and also high GPAs. Your GPA will bring scrutiny, but it should be able to be satisfied with your strong GMAT. If you like Health industry consulting, you should look at Duke--it's like Kellogg, but with one of the nation's best hospitals on campus and a top-rated Health MGT MBA program.

Thanks. Figured the GPA was a little low and I have been preparing for how to respond to why. I'll take a look at Duke as well. Any other top 10's worth looking at?
