Age: 26
Gender: Male
Nationality: USA (American Born Chinese)

BS in Cell Biology UC San Diego
Minor - Music
Minor - Economics

GPA: 3.28 (Worked part time as student in college at Major Pharmaceutical company from Sophomore year, to pay for school, etc.)
GMAT: 690 Q48, V37 6.0 AWA

Work Experience:
Major Biotech/Med Device Corporation (2007 - Present):
I was in a leadership rotational program focused on Operations for ~2 years (3 rotations of 9 mo/ea)
Now at a Jr. Manager level, focused on distribution Quality for the division. (2009 - present)

Nothing earth shattering, but very consistent with my interests, thus perhaps easier to demonstrate passion when discussing:
- Tutor "underprivileged" community high schoolers.
- Minor leadership role in Environmental/beach cleanup organization

Schools (Haven't fully narrowed down yet but the pool is):
- Stanford
- Harvard
- Haas
- Sloan
- Kellogg
- Booth

After my MBA:
I want to go into Business Development in the Biotech/Pharma/Healthcare industry. May look into 2 year consulting experience before jumping into that role.

I'm looking to apply for Fall 2012. What do you think are my chances at the schools I've listed?

Do you think I should retake 690 or focus on getting another R1 app off?

Any other words of wisdom?

I think your chances at Stanford, HBS, Sloan, and Haas are being diminished by the low verbal score on the GMAT. The score seems low enough that you could boost it with some work. The rotational program and your junior management role now mean that professionally you're in a good position but I would like to see some more community involvement - less in tutoring one-on-one and more in leading teams (beach cleanup or otherwise).
