The GPA is very low
for the NYU part-time program, UCLA, and Texas, though the other programs may be more feasible with a strong GMAT – I agree also that your explanation will help mitigate the effect. If you have good grades in quant courses, that will also help.
Your work experience is your key strength obviously. However, your goals
seem rather vague – it’s good to have a plan A and a plan B, but VC/PE will be very tough, both to justify in essays and to obtain positions. I suggest focusing on one of these areas as your primary short- and long-term goal, with another as a plan B, and explain how this plan B will also get you to your long-term goal.
