Hoping to get some feedback on my profile. Thanks in advance for any input! My background:

Academic
    B.S., magna cum laude, in Finance from Big 10 school
    3.92/4.00 GPA
    1 of 10 to receive a senior award out of class of 1500
    Beta Gamma Sigma (top 7%)
    Full-tuition ROTC scholarship

GMAT
720 -- 49Q 39V (planning on retaking shortly)

Work Experience
    Mid-market investment banking internship during undergrad
    Bulge-bracket sales and trading internship
    Two years at the same bulge-bracket after graduation in sales and trading
    My school is not-quite a "target" so definitely difficult (but not impossible) positions to get
    Simultaneously, a Lieutenant in the Army National Guard (I have my sales and trading position full-time and attend drill for the National Guard one weekend a month).
    One deployment with the National Guard
    Worth noting that I've only come across two other National Guardsmen who hold similar Wall Street jobs, so it's a relatively unique angle (most military applicants did x years of active duty then try to transition to get an MBA)

Extracuriculars
    Good amount in college: business fraternity positions, clubs in ROTC, finance clubs
    Post college: some mentoring and assisting veterans who are transitioning into undergrad

Target Schools
    Wharton
    Columbia
    Booth
    Tuck
    Sloan
    Kellogg
    Yale SOM
    NYU
    Cornell

Looking forward for your feedback and criticism. Thanks again!

You definitely have a good shot at these schools & if you can get your GMAT up all the better! The adcom loves military applicants & you've got a strong undergrad GPA & strong work experience as well. You're definitely in a good position to apply to these schools assuming some strong essays & LORs. One thing that will also be critical are your post-MBA goals since your why MBA/why our school rests on those. That will help you narrow your list of schools as well.
