You are an solid applicant for your target schools. Your GMAT score may be on the lower end of the middle 80% range: Haas (680-760), Darden (650 - 740), Ross (650-750), and Duke (640-750) so the rest of your application needs to be very strong. Be very clear when stating your goals and how they align with the strengths of each program. Also, be sure to discuss your background in music and art because it shows that you are well-rounded and will add diversity to the class. You want to highlight your strengths and also differentiate yourself from the typical applicant.
