Hi Some2609,

Thanks for posting. Nothing about your story makes me think there is any reason why you cannot be admitted, but nothing stands out telling me why you should be admitted. All of the reasons why a top program would admit you are in the details of your work experience, personal experiences, personality, values and overall story.

Regarding your GMAT score, you have a strong score. For the exam your highest score will be self-reported on your application, which is why admissions teams will focus on your best score. It is for this reason that we recommend that if you believe you can improve your score by 30+ points, that you consider retaking the exam.

We have free school specific advice here:
