GMAT is a huge handicap. You have a decent profile, but not enough to overcome a GMAT that is significantly lower than the average. Putting in strong applications is a given - I mean, there's going to be plenty of people who will be doing that, *and* they will have stronger GMATs and a decent profile.

You may want to hold off until R2 -- and do whatever it takes to boost that GMAT score on a retake. Ideally 700, and at a bare minimum a 680.
