Predicament! Minimum GMAT met but lacking competitiveness! [#permalink]

This is my first post ever on GMAT club, so please forgive me if I make any errors in technicality, mannerisms, and/or protocols! Any helpful feedback would be appreciated!
GOAL: - To get into Canada's McMaster (Degroote's MBA Co-op Program) - Requirements: -----GMAT scores: Minimum Q37/V27. Competitive total score = 600+. -----Last two years GPA = B or better -----Reference letters, behavior based interview - Rolling Admissions - DEADLINE: JUNE.1.2012
ME: - CON: GMAT Score = Q38/30. Total = 570. (I only studied for a month because I found out so late AND the school works by rolling admissions so I thought the sooner the better). - Kinda PRO(?): Graduated UofT with Bachelor of Science (last two years GPA = 3.6 <second-last year 3.42 + last year 3.78>) - PRO: Experiences include Psychology research assistant (1 year), Volunteer leader at a clinic (2 summers), Volunteer and founder of a music program at a hospital (3+years). And a whole array of random jobs like Starbucks (4-5months), Tommy Hilfiger (4-5months), all with whom I have good relations! Oh, I also have been volunteering at a local church as a sound coordinator & technician (almost 2 years). - PRO: Very strong reference letters (I still keep in touch!). - PRO: I think I'm a pretty unique individual. lol.
(As you can see, I'm trying to outweigh my con with my pros, lol)
PREDICAMENT: - I emailed the school for a pre-assessment but didn't get a reply (I understand it's a very busy time for schools). - My GMAT score meets the minimum but lacks competitiveness... - I don't want to give my score now and find out I was rejected for my GMAT scores.
So, should I wait for another month (Mid April) to rewrite my test? Or go with what I have given the rolling admissions?

If you believe you can get higher on the GMAT it's worth a retake! You only do this once, and even if it's a lot of work it's better to put that effort in to do it right! So put on your studying cap, tell your friends you can't go drinking with them for a month and knock the heck out of that GMAT! _________________
