Your stats seem like they would warrant an interview at the very least. You seem to also have exceptional work experience which they will value. I don't know whether or not you have considered this but go on a search engine and type in "Schulich-Kellogg EMBA" Essentially, I believe it is completely online (I could be mistaken) and I believe you get two MBAs from it in roughly a year or so.

I only bring this up because your work experience is good enough that it now qualifies you for this. If you dont know, Schulich is a top MBA from Canada and combined with a top MBA from the U.S, it may be something you might be interested in. The cost is also comparable to a normal MBA if memory serves correct.

Let us know how things work out! Good luck!

You should be competitive for their part-time programs with the profile you have. Just focus on the written applications and interviews, and you should have a decent shot (i.e. you hit a sweet spot: solid experience, a little older, decent numbers - and yes your GMAT should be okay for part-time programs as they are a little more forgiving).
