I think any of them would be very happy to take you, unless you're a completely impersonal robot with no social skills... even THEN, your academic and professional accolades cannot be overlooked. The internship at GS is especially eye catching (are you looking into a finance focus with your math background?), as is the stellar GMAT and work experience. I would assume you'd have your pick of these places barring any horrible truths you've left out. :)

Haha, yeah maybe. You'd figure someone with those accolades wouldn't need the advice of a forum to figure out if they should be optimistic or not. Either that or they were in need of some ego stroking.
