Yes your diversity in work experience sounds like it should help you stand out from the pack.

In terms of where you should apply, you should base that on what you want to do after b-school.

It could influence the decision -- the verbal score is taken into consideration along with a number of other factors:

1) Essays
2) Recommendation
3) Interview
4) Resume

To have a greater chance of getting accepted, these other factors should drafted to convey a high degree of verbal dexterity, which would thereby offset the relatively score.
