There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Despite my initial GMAT, I was able to secure a Sloan interview and Kellogg waitlist, but could not convert at either. Since the '08 application season, I have significantly improved my GMAT to the mentioned score. However, I realize that a strong re-application is not built on a GMAT re-take alone. In addition, my waitlist status extended my communication with Kellogg (update letters into June) so there is less "new" material available. Given these circumstances, I would like to understand my chances with a Kellogg re-app and additional re-apps to Stanford and Haas (both of which did not extend interviews to me) after only one year. Two-year re-apps make more sense?

With your improved score you should certainly reapply at Sloan and Kellogg (1st-round submission would have been ideal). Your profile seems strong but I didn't see the "unusualness" that would make Stanford doable for you. I might just need to know your profile better. But I would not discourage you from applying to Haas. At your age waiting two years for a re-app does not make sense. You need to apply now. Chances are it was the GMAT that was holding you back. See Accepted.com's info on reapplicants.
Hope this helps,
