I’d consider your target schools mostly very high reaches
, perhaps unrealistic. My reason is based on the combination of your being in an over-represented group
that features high scores and a very low GPA and a GMAT that is OK but not outstanding (as it needs to be to mitigate the GPA, and even then it would do so only partially).
To address the GPA, I suggest taking some courses (perhaps online) and earning A’s to demonstrate your ability to excel academically. That will help. You made a great leap with the GMAT score already, but if you think another retake would allow you to boost it further, I’d suggest doing that as well, if your heart is set on programs of this competitive level.
Even if you do those two things, you should probably develop another list of less competitive programs that still would give you what you need.
