Redbean, are you male or female? I don't think your GMAT score is particularly low on its own, but in light of it combined with your GPA I might want to retake it. Do you have time?

I have a friend from the Philippines who ended up going to a Top 5 B-school and she benefited from having graduated so early as well-- she had significant work experience but was only 24/25 at the time. Looks like you will benefit as well. It is impressive that you started up a company that now employs 40 people.

How are your extra curriculars? Have you been involved in anything since graduating?

If you will sacrifice essay time, then don't retake it. I think your gmat is good, especially considering your unique experiences and you are probably at the 80/80 mark
