Aside from b-school admissions, you're going to have trouble trying to go i-banking with a 610 GMAT. Ibanking generally recruits the top of the class and they usually ask you what your GMAT score was. As for PE/VC world, they don't recruit MBAs. My advice would be to check out executive programs. With your experience, you could get into a good EMBA. Your past banking experience might help you convince everyone otherwise, but you may want to look into other areas of interest as well. Banking likes to hire young chart toppers and if you are 29 and not already advancing your ibanking career, it's unlikely the MBA will help much at this point. You are getting a little long in the tooth for the typical fresh associate banking route.
