You have a shot at all the schools on your list, but Wharton, CBS, haas, Kellogg, HBS, Sloan and Stern are all stretches. You are more competitive at LBS and INSEAD, which may be better choices for you too, especially INSEAD.

Please let me know if we canhelp you with your MBA applications.

Best,
Linda

Round 1 your chances are better. Your main "weakness" is a slightly below average GMAT combined with an average GPA (for these programs. And these programs are tough; that's not a weakness, but it is a factor. Your strengths are your work experience, community service, your masters grades, and (I'm guessing)" your personal story.

Best,
Linda
