Am looking for some good advice as I plan the next leg of my MBA application journey. Just finished the GMAT with a 760 (49 Q / 45 V) and 6.0 AWA.

I know that this is almost everyone's problem, but my GPA from undergrad is on the lower side - 3.1 - from Tufts, with a degree in Quantitative Economics. Have I sufficiently offset this with my GMAT? I guess also, I did poorly in two quantitative classes -- one an upper level math, and the other a very intro, not even eligible for a major class. I've since taken 3 classes at a reputable school's Continuing Education program in Finance and Accounting and have received all A's.

Been working for 3 years now in consulting - 1 for a boutique firm, and 2 for a start-up firm. Was asked to join by a partner of the old firm who left. Since it is small, I've had a great deal of diverse experience.

What are your thoughts on my ability to get into a top 10? Should I think about the optional essay?

Yes, I think your GMAT score and even your consulting experience will help to offset your undergrad GPA. Also, in your essays and interview, be sure to emphasize that you now have the discipline that it takes to excel in b-school classes.

I know very little about your overall profile, but I don't see a reason why you shouldn't target top 10 schools. If you're interested in law school admissions help, we can help you there, too!
