I was hopping you could shed some light on the strength of my application.

Gender: White male
Undergrad: Bucknell University
Major: Economics and political Science
GPA: 3.16 (I know its on the lower end, if it helps I'm dyslexic)
GRE: 163 Verbal, 160 Quantitative

Work: Various internships through college, currently serving as a Community and Economic Development Peace Corps Volunteer

Looking to apply in the fall, I am wondering where I could realistically apply.

Most b-schools are looking for candidates with 3-5 years of experience in a business role, and they do prefer to see full time work experience rather than internships. Your Peace Corps experience will help you stand out, but the fact that you haven't had any full time business roles will be a challenge as will your GPA. It might be worth considering waiting to secure a business role once you're down with the Peace Corps & applying once you have at least a couple of years of experience in a full-time business position. That said, if you'd like to go ahead & apply now my advice would be to target schools in the 40-50 range based on US News and World Report. But I think you could get into a higher ranked school with more work experience, and it would give you time to potentially improve your GRE as well, which is always a good thing!
