I would retake GRE, most of these schools want their applicants in the 90th quant percentile

Also mention a cool hobby, most school want their students well rounded

Each program you mentioned is really good and competitive. There is no safety school listed. If you apply to each one, I think you will get accepted to one or two of them. If you were a domestic student it would be more. I'm almost certain that you will get accepted to one of the programs listed.

School prominence is good. GPA isn't great, but isn't horrible. That GRE converts to about a 700 which is good. Work experience is a plus.

MIT - Low odds
WUSTL (Quant track) - 50%
Villanova - 75%
Vanderbilt - 50%
USC - 40%
George Washington - This is more of an MBA substitute. I'd look at other schools.
Duke (MMS) - 60-75%
UT Austin - 50%

Take GWU off the list and add JHU (DC) campus to your list. It will get you in DC and it will be a safety school for you. I'd also consider throwing OSU or something like that on the list. I think your odds at MIT are pretty low, but all the other ones should be good. I'd consider Nova to be a almost sure thing. Vanderbilt will like your work experience and the CFO recommendations.

If your practice scores are "750/760" then retake it. You'd be a lock at every program except MIT if you scored 750+, and to be honest your only chance to get into MIT is to submit a Gmat score over 750. I think you'd have a decent chance to get in there if you did that.
