Everything is either competitive or better than competitive except your GMAT, which is slighlty below average for your target schools, but not terrible. You certainly have a chance at your target schools. You can either 1) Apply now and hope for the best, relying on the excellent other elements of your profile. If you are now accepted, prepare again and retake the GMAT and then reapply next year, or 2) If you believe you can raise your GMAT, prepare again now, retake and raise your score, and apply R2.

While I know my response is frustrating, you really areon the cusp, and I can make a good argument for either course of action. I think the key factor has to be how important it is for you to go this year. If that's critical, then retake and apply R2. If not retaking the GMAT is primary or if you think it's unlikely you can raise it, then apply R1 and see if you get in.

Regards,
Linda
