Hi kitkitkatkat,

If you believe you can improve your GMAT score by 40+ points, then you may want to consider taking the test again. You should apply to the round when you feel your application is strongest and you shouldn't be worried if you apply to Round 2 (the only exception to this is that you should avoid applying to the last round). Remember that your GMAT score is self-reported on your application, so admissions teams will only focus on your highest score.

For your application, you may want to read this case study of an engineer who was accepted into Columbia, Tuck, and MIT.

Business schools are looking for individuals with leadership experience, so this is something that should be addressed.

Hope this was of help.

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
