A mid-600's GMAT score is competitive for York, McMaster, and McGill's MBA programs. I am not familiar with Victoria's program. If you want to consider American programs, look into the Unversity of Nevada at Las Vegas or Cornell. Both have specialities in hospitality, although your GMAT, depending on where it ends up, may be a problem at Cornell. If you get financial aid, at the American schools you may end up paying the same.
