I share your concerns about your GPA, but that GMAT will sure help you. Also, if you wait a year and progress at work, that additional year of work experience would put more time between you and your GPA and could really help you. As is, I think you are applying appropriately. The question is going to be who will overlook the GPA and lack of WE in light of the GMAT and good quality of your work experience. I think one of your target programs will; I just don't know which one.

Best,
Linda
