International applicants will find more favor with the adcoms on the verbal score, so I wouldn't worry about it. Did you take the TOEFL? You should try to get at least a 105-110 on the TOEFL if you can. Schools value international students, but do not want to hinder their experience nor the experience of the other students if the communication skills aren't there. Have you considered EMBA programs? With 9 yrs experience, you might be a good candidate for EMBA programs and can continue working wihile you are getting the degree instead of losing the income.
just a thought.
