Thanks for posting. With regards to your application, admissions teams in general like to see at least 2 years of experience, however there is no "right" number of years of work experience a candidate should have. We recommend you apply when you feel the time is right for you, and that your application is at its strongest.
The GMAT is an important factor in your candidacy, and it's something you should focus a lot of attention on. If you'd like, we provide free GMAT advice here: http://www.stacyblackman.com/test-prep-hub/
. MBA.com also provides 2 free official practice GMAT exams.
We also provide a Stanford Essay Guide here: http://www.stacyblackman.com/essay-guides/stanford/
