Based on my past experience with successful low-GMAT clients at Cornell, you have a chance at Johnson even with a 650 but I would need to know more about your profile -- such as how balanced or unbalanced your score was, how much leadership exposure you have etc. Your age will put you in the top 10% of your class but is not nearly as important as your GMAT score. You should feel optimistic about your chances at Fordham, Zicklin, SUNY. I agree that Stern is probably a longshot for you.
