I am a 29 year Senior Software Developer from Silicon Valley with 5 years of experience in leading technology firm.
Prior to this I have a M.S. from top US school with some research experience and papers.
My GMAT is 660 (48/34) and my GPA has been around 3.5 in both my undergrad and grad schools.
I am planning to apply to part time MBA programs in Silicon Valley. Some of my options are:

UC Davis Bay area
Santa Clara
Any other choice ?

What are my chances of getting admission in above schools? Is my GMAT good enough or should I give my GMAT again.
I was scoring ~700-730 in my practice test and got little overconfident during the exam

You seem to have good work experience. You have an above average GPA in your undergrad and gradate courses which is fine. If you retake your GMAT and score around 700 , you will definitely make your profile stronger. However, if you are not too keen to retake it, I would suggest focus on strengthening other parts of your application. Effective and persuasive essays that showcase your candidacy in the best manner, outstanding recommendations, and a carefully crafted resume outlining your most significant accomplishment, should offset your average GMAT score. So your chances of admission to these schools , or any other school for that matter ,will depend on a stellar application package .

I hope it helped.

Haas is pretty selective, and I think with your numbers you will be a longshot. But you might want to look into the part-time or EMBA program at Berkeley where they don't look for as high of a GMAT. Not to say that it's any less rigorous. They just look more at your work experience for those programs.
