Thanks in advance!!
Your chances would be better next year at Kellogg, even assuming you do hit that 720 GMAT. Right now, your most likely acceptance is CMU Tepper, but (I'm assuming you get a least a 720 on the GMAT) you do have a competitive profile for Darden, Emory, Duke, NUS, and Ross if they are willing to accept you with only 3 years of work experience. Duke and Ross in particular tend to value experience.
