Your GMAT score and your GPA are really at odds. Not knowing where you earned your UG degree, why you changed majors nor what your goals are makes it difficult to evaluate your profile. Your GMAT indicates that you've got the capability. In any event, explanations will definitely be in order, and this means your essays will be crucial. Your work experience seems solid.

Of the schools you've targeted, Stanford is least likely because of their emphasis on the GPA.

Hi RobbieWalker,
Does Harvard put alot of emphasis on GPA? Even if the GMAT score is really high? I mean I have 770 (Q51 V46) but my GPA is pretty low. Its difficult to convert to the 4 point system, but I think it will only be about 3.

HBS, like all the schools, will look at your GPA of course, and the disparity between that and your GMAT could raise flags. However, if you have compelling explanations and solid leadership experience, you might be able to overcome that.
