Are you open to retaking the GMAT?

Also focus on developing your story of why an MBA and why Kellogg. I think a strong drive and a story that makes sense can really strengthen an application when conveyed by concise essays.

Congrats on a strong GPA, however when thinking about how schools evaluate candidates and it really is a holistic process so all aspects of your candidacy will be evaluated from WE to GPA to GMAT, you get the picture. When you look at the Kellogg GMAT range you are on the lower end which poses a risk given that around 70% of admitted students will have scored higher than you. So this would pose a risk for you, balancing whether you feel you can score higher and have the time to given the upcoming deadlines I would recommend you consider re-taking the GMAT

I agree with the above and will also add that your professional experience and your resume is going to weigh a lot more than your undergraduate GPA. Stellar professional experience at known-name company in your field is the most important credential, in my opinion, every time.
