Hi there, and thanks for writing! You have solid academics, progressive work experience, and good outside involvement. I think that Fuqua and Darden are right within your range, while HBS, Sloan, Haas, and Wharton are likely reaches given the heavily represented nature of your profile and their lower acceptance rates - however, I don't think they're out of reach for you if you make a strong case for why each program is a good fit for you. When describing your post-MBA goals, be sure to describe what drives you towards them. Also, on your resume, be sure to highlight your accomplishment and impact (vs. simply listing your key responsibilities, as I've seen on many resumes).

Let me know of any questions, and best of luck! :)
