I am not an expert but your short term and long term goals have a lot of overlap with mine.( I love the converse brand from Nike.)

Now, you have a solid GMAT. But for the schools you mentioned it is pretty low.

Next, Why are you sticking to just the two of them. Nike is in Portland and Boston(headquarters) That makes BC a viable option too.

Plus look at schools such as Kelley,Vandy and Tepper.

If you aim for these schools that would eliminate the need to retake the GMAT. Else if you only want HBS and GSB then retake the GMAT and aim for a 760 if you an Asian Male and a 740 if you are an Asian Female.
