Hello there, dude.
Sorry it took us soooo long to get back to you, we took a little holiday there.
Anyhow, we are revved up and ready to rock.
You have overall a very good and long work experience, which will be a great basis for you app. Of course, as you know, your big and obvious weak point in the GMAT. If retaking is at all possible, you should definitely consider it (I know, time is running out). In general I folks to go to the best school you can, and in your case, the thing that will make the difference here is that GMAT and of course your essays).
As for your goals, definitely go with 2. Goal 1 is not very likely to happen. There are very few positions in PE/VC, they are the most sought after, and they tend to go to the financial wizards. Goal 2 makes more sense in terms of what you have done. Overall, keep in mind that it is VERY important for you to keep a connect between your past experience and your proposed goals.
Hope this helps, dude!
