Thanks for sharing your profile. You have a solid profile but on paper nothing that will make you stand out too much. Now that is not a negative just means you will need to do some work in your essays to really stand out and it seems like you have some essay fodder to do that

Kellogg - NO, Tuck - NO, Columbia - NO, Booth - NO, Sloan - NO, Darden - YES, Duke - YES, Stern - YES

NO - here just means on paper it is unlikely
YES - just means more likely than not

None of your schools are out of the realm of possibility just the data points are not in your favor given the GMAT/GPAs and competitiveness of the programs
