Hello there,
I'm gonna be honest with ya, with your GMAT score and your first MBA you are fighting an uphill battle. It is gonna be tough if you don't retake your GMAT, as it is hard enough to convince schools to take you when you already have an MBA. Also, are you looking for an MBA or an EMBA? I would suggest the latter, because it would be much easier to build a story, because they are one year, and because they fit your profile better.

Hi,

Thanks for the inputs, appreciate the same - I am looking for a full time 1 year MBA program.

Perhaps a programs which gives more importance to work ex and does not go very high on GMAT requirements.

Can you suggest some schools on that basis.

Well there ARE programs out there of course. But I feel that mostly you have to go soooo down the list that it becomes questionable whether or not it's worth your while to do the MBA. A few things I would like to point out though - one year regular MBA programs exist with a few exceptions only in Europe, so if you are aiming for the States, you should reconsider doing EMBA programs too. As for which schools you can apply to, well there are lots, I would suggest starting with the rankings, and look at schools ranked 50 or lower, paying special attention to the average GMAT score of applicants.
