What are my chances of getting into a top school given my recent gmat.

So I just retook the gmat and got a 730 48Q 42V. I am a bit disappointed since my verbal score dropped from 48. I just can’t seem to get the math and verbal to come together in the same test. In all my practice tests I have never gotten as low as 42 so I feel like I could have done better (I excel at verbal). Right now I am wondering if I improve my chances at Harvard or Stanford by taking it again and getting a 760. Here are some other points on my profile, I will be curious to hear people’s take.
I have a 3.82 in computer science from Stanford
4 years work experience 2 in investment banking and 2 in a web startup
Don’t have a any extra curricular since school but had a ton in school.
I have overcome a learning disability (does this make me look good or bad)

Your GMAT won't be an issue -- it's about being "good enough". So long as it's above a certain range (700+), whether you get a 730 or a 760 isn't really going to make much difference, since it will come down to the rest of the application.
