Hi,

Thanks for your post. It sounds like you've had some interesting experiences, though 3 jobs in 3 years occasionally raises some questions so be sure to show what you've learned and gained from each and how you chose to make the changes. The GPA will be tough to overcome particularly at your reach schools... to be honest you may have better chances with those if you took another year, gained even more experience at Amazon, and took a course or two that are relevant for b-school and show your current academic ability by getting A's (all in addition to nailing the GMAT).

That said with a strong GMAT and other application elements, I would hope that you'd be considered at the non-reach options on your list. Good luck with your decisions!
