Oh man, you definitely win the prize for the best post title of the month.
Flattery will get you everywhere my friend.

First of all let me say that you have some really great stuff that we don't see too much of - like your political work for the trade union, public speaking, publishing papers, that can make you a great candidate and give you a shot at the best of schools, even the ones you listed. Why do I say CAN??? Because there are two issues (thankfully fixable) which if you want to be a strong candidate need to be addressed:

1. GMAT - you know this already, but really you have some great stuff, why let your great profile be torpedoed by a GMAT that is just too low to get you in. Take one two months and retake. Take a year or even two. But come back with that 710+ and all of a sudden you will be in the running.

2. Work - You need to have a plan and a concrete position once you finish this union thing in May. Schools don't like it when you apply without a job cause it can mean that you would be unemployed for a whole year and a half before you go to school. Land yourself a good job BEFORE you apply, even if you know you will only stay for a year.

Hope this helps!!!!!
