Right now with a score of 510 it's going to be a low chance. Your goal is to get a 650 - hopefully you are within range when you take the exam. You may have everything going great for you - but once you miss your goal then chances of getting into that particular school may fall.

As you are 32, above the average age...you might want to tell a story of why you didn't decide to get an MBA a few years earlier. Certainly the part-time program will have many folks with more years of work experience but be prepared to have this story. Most of NYU MBAs are part-time so you are in luck here. Just make sure your GMAT score is on target and you tell a great story....what do you want to do with MBA after? Is your GMAT imbalanced between verbal/quant? How might you be different?
