Welcome to GMAT Club,

Moving your post into a more appropriate forum.
I would say you want to shore up your Quant score somewhat. Q42 is fairly low these days (below 50th percentile) esp for someone looking to join quant-strong schools from a quant-based background. It just makes it look like you have not tried hard-enough (which may be completely opposite of reality but that's the optics of it). If you can get your Quant score up to Q49, I think you won't have any issues with your target scores. (That will transalte into GMAT of around 690). Is that at all an option?

Thanks BB. I travel extensively for work, to the point where it’s truly inhibits my ability to study. (not trying to make excuses).

Would applying be a waste /are my chances pretty low? but if it must be done, then I’m committed.

I don't think it is hopeless with low quant score, but your GMAT score is going to be your BIGGEST bottleneck and potentially in a stumbling block in a few schools. You are well below the average. I pulled up the Decision Tracker feed for Stern from last year (class of 2020) and I do see a number of people with similarly low Quant score (but their overall scores however are around 700). I think you need to add 50 points to your score to be competitive and not get eliminated by an excel formula on the adcom spreadsheet.

Stern Decisions Tracker: https://gmatclub.com/forum/stern-199/de ... acker.html (choose 2020 from drop down on the right hand side to see last year or years before then)
