You have a solid profile here. Score above Yale's 720 average to maximize your chance. Don't worry about your chances - I've seen various head scratcher decisions made by every school's admissions committee. If your profile happens to be what the school's looking for, they'll take you. Just don't give them reasons to turn you down by submitting an inconsistent or poorly articulated application or a below average GMAT score. Good luck.

Profile looks very promising (the volunteer experience especially, in my opinion), but of course the actual GMAT score will be crucial in the end, as a well as an outstanding application. So that’s where your focus should lie going forward. A well formulated application, as well as a GMAT score in the range you mentioned could very well lead to you being accepted.

Best of luck!
