      Hi there,

      thank you for your question. I am confident that with this CV you have good chances to become invited to the interviews with all schools - except for Harvard - mentioned. For Harvard, of course the competition will be higher so that they may prefer applicants with even higher grades. But if you achieve 750 in your GMAT, your chances should be good as well.

      Best wishes
