Since you used "Top 25" as cutoff, it seems to me that you wouldn't be happy with a lower ranked school even if the fit is good. That's very ambitious, but your profile is great.
Just adding more schools does't mean much to me, if your goal is to be conservative.
Adding more schools who are an excellent fit could mean a lot, because then you probably would be adding schools with great odds for you and weaker competition. But there is no way I can tell which schools would be an exccellent fit, we don't even know about your research interests. That`s the kind of work that each applicant must do really, since each one has different research interests.
At this stage of the game, I'd say you're done with applications.
Til now I always got by on my own
I never really cared until I met you...
V149....with Q169, and V156 with Q164... I found the average Verbal for some schools such as NYU Stern is around 157-159... I thought V156 is not a very good score, but won't be filtered out, so I sent the V156Q164 to most programs .....BTW, I applied CB/behavioral track for most programs, but for some programs, if I could choose a second track, I choose both. (I am interested in branding, global and cross-cultural marketing. My two conference papers are both in my favorite fields, but one on the econ side (quant), one about social psychology (behavioral).)
I believe some top program such as Kellogg, Hass is definitely not the place for me. Schools that are accepted combined total scores (like NYU, Duke) may be approachable...
I think the GRE score will be below the cutoff for many of the top schools. One thing to think about is whether the Wharton professor knew your GRE scores when they were nice to you?
I think though that you may have some success in 10-25. I would personally not apply to backup schools but redo your GRE and perhaps apply again next year if you don't get in.
