Hi there,

You are in the 'ballpark' so to speak for both the Haas EWMBA (avg gmat 700) and UCLA FEMBA (average 680), and have enough experience to bring a lot of perspective to the table... I don't know as much about the details of your career and CV and leadership examples and accomplishments etc, or other community involvement and life elements... all of those can make a big impact, as can recommendations and essays, so tough to say how strong your shot is, but you're not too far of a stretch based upon GMAT. I would base the re-take decision upon how likely you think it would be for you to improve... i.e. if you have been getting 730+ on practice tests for example I'd say give it one more shot ASAP just in case you improve and it helps! If not really confident in that maybe focus on other elements of the applications. Good luck!
