The 570 is a bit below the program’s average, but not hugely so
. What makes it problematic is that your GPA is also on the low side. Normally I’d suggest taking a course or two and earning A’s, which would somewhat mitigate both low numbers and show your commitment as well as academic capability. However, there’s not time to do that before your submission date.
If you can both retake the GMAT and focus on application, I suggest doing both. Retaking the GMAT would make sense IF you are relatively sure you can raise the score meaningfully in a retake. If you do not have that certainty, then definitely focus on the application and do the best you can with it – as I noted above, you’re not so far off from their average. Also, in terms of prioritizing, since you’re not likely to score way above the average and your GPA is on the low side, no matter what, you should really put everything you have into a great application
