What left behind were general eduacation courses like (spanish, art, music...) I had the option of doing these course through distance learning.

With your current GMAT, USC, Ross, and NYU are such long shots that I don't think it makes sense for you to apply. Even with a 700 GMAT, due to your GPA, I think NYU and Ross would be out of reach. USC may be accessible if you get a 700 and there were extenuating circumstances that no longer exist surrounding your undergrad GPA.

I think you currently have a chance at OSU and MSU. Obviously a higher GMAT will increase your competitiveness and help them overlook that GPA.
