Thanks for sharing your profile. Nice profile but the schools on your list will be a bit tough for you given you fall below the GMAT and GPA avgs for these schools. Not totally out of the realm of possibility just know you will really have to find a way to stand out from the pack or seek to improve your GMAT score to be more competitive for these schools. Nice profile just feels a bit out of range for these schools on paper
