Hey there!
You have a very solid and very nice profile there. Great grades, summa cum laude (even if it is a small school), good work in the Big 4. I think your school choice is pretty good for your profile from what I can see. Scholarships are notoriously hard to predict, but you can always try.

Actually if this is an option, probably the one thing you can do that would really boost your profile and increase your chances of getting a scholarship would be if you were applying with a better GMAT. so even if you could get 20-30 points, at this level, it could make a quite huge difference.

I hope this helps!

Are there any other schools that you would add to the list? Maybe Emory and UCLA?

Hey there,
Well I tend to think of schools in terms of ranges. As for which SPECIFIC schools to advise you on that I will need your criteria:
- Big or small?
- Location preferences?
- Case study/hands on or mixed?
- Other considerations

In general, for your profile I would say your total range is schools ranked about 5-30. where the schools 5-15 will be a bit of a stretch, and 15-30 would be solid. Within that range, you should select a spread of schools.

Feel free to write again with more info,
Best,
JF
