You should be competitive for the part-time programs you listed. It comes down to how well you execute the applications as well as how well you interview (should you get an invite, but assuming your applications are well executed, you should be able to get the interview invites from these schools). Good luck!

Thank you so much for the reply!!
Could you please answer me two more questions? I'm concerned about my low GMAT verbal score to apply for Booth MBA program. Do you think that getting a high TOEFL score (over 105?) will be helpful in this regard? (As I'm a permanent resident, I don't need the score though..) And can you suggest other MBA programs for either general management or international business in the midwest area?

Again, I really appreciate your help!

The TOEFL and GMAT verbal measure two different things. TOEFL is a test of proficiency in English. The GMAT verbal is a crude measure of your critical thinking/reasoning skills. Your GMAT score (the 710) is fine. Don't worry about it anymore.

As for schools, you can also look at Indiana, Carnegie Mellon (is Pittsburgh technically midwest?), maybe even Illinois, Ohio State.
