I will be matriculating after my 2 year commitment with Teach For America ends. I have a 700 gmat and 3.5 gpa. Graduated in 2011 from a state university in the south. Excellent leadership in college (president of a large org) and involved in the community now (big brothers/big sisters). I also started an sat prep program at my school and have some solid student achievement data. I want to go to business school now to develop a better fundamental understanding of business concepts that I felt my undergrad education lacked. I am interested in UNC, Darden and Duke. Are these realistic? Thanks.

Biggest issue for you is that you will only have 1 year of experience by the time you apply (2 years by the time you matriculate), when you're up against folks with 3-5 years of experience at the time of application and who will have more to work with in terms of essay material.

Having said that, TFA is very well respected, which should at least help keep you in the running for the schools you listed. If you feel you're ready to go back to b-school, then apply. Just know that adcoms will be concerned about your relative inexperience as well as employability (i.e. post-MBA recruiters won't really know what to do with you because you don't have any traditional corporate/office experience like other folks in engineering, business, etc).
