Hi elijiah:

I am going to assume that you are going to apply to both programs by their respective April deadlines. I believe that Chicago is April 6 and Kellogg is April 13. If this is so, I recommend not re-taking the GMAT because of the time constraint and the fact that you have taken it three times before. I now it depends on when you last took the test, but I believe that three times is enough to determine a "true" score.

All this being said, your current score of 680 should be good enough to get into both programs. Additionally, I say this because the bar is lower for part-time programs and based on my past experience with applicants to various part-time programs.

With respect to your GPA, take a look at WES international GPA calculator for an approximate conversion.

Shifting gears, I have worked with about 10 applicants to both these part-time programs in the last 2 years. If you want to set up a consultation, please email me at mba@amerasiaconsulting.com.

Respectfully,
Paul Lanzillotti
