Thanks for sharing your profile. I would say your work experience will not stand out, which is the one thing that stood out. I would focus on gaining some leadership experience here to really highlight the strength of this area of your profile. You will need to make sure your career path to date and future steps are clear. Programs need to clearly understand and agree with your desire to pursue an MBA so put some additional thought into this. As far as the GMAT goes I would aim for 700
