I'm preparing to apply for fall 2010, but I'm not sure what my chances are and if it is realistic to apply with my current profile and Gmat Scores.

Here it is:

Your profile looks very typical in many respects, which unfortunately doesn't help you very much given that you want to stand out from other applicants as much as possible. Your GMAT score will greatly limit the number of schools you have a chance at. Luckily, you are still young so you have time to bring that score up (aim for 700 or higher for top 20 schools) and get more leadership in and outside of work. I could mention some schools for applicants with GMATs below 600 but they would be very low-ranked programs, so you are better off waiting and raising that score.

Good luck,
