I'm very pessimistic about your chances at NYU and frankly don't think it makes sense for you to apply. Fordham and Zicklin are stretch programs. I'm not familiar with Lubin.

If you think you could raise the GMAT (and I can understand why you would be discouraged), it makes sense for you to retake. Alternatively, take a bunch of math classes and ace them. Start with the lowest level you have prerequisites for and then just keep taking math classes. Accounting and statistics for business would also be helpful. Somehow, you need to show you can do the math.

Best,
Linda
