You have a lot going for you, but that 41 quant score could be an issue. I'm not at all optimistic about your chances at Duke. You are much more competitive at the other schools on your list provided that your grades in quant classes are strong.

Basically if you want to argue that your grades are weak because of illness and absent the illness, they would have higher, your case would be much stronger with a higher quant score.

Best,
Linda
