Schools will not look down on the fact that you took the GMAT multiple times. They will consider your highest score.

Assuming you have good grades and work experience you can still apply to USC Marshall and UCLA, although I agree that your chances aren't great, especially at UCLA, but you should also apply at less competitive schools where you are more likely to gain admission.

Good luck!
