I think it may be tough for the schools on the higher end. Duke is for sure possible. Tuck and SOM could be too with a strong story and great recs. Also depends on what tier firm you are applying from - I had a 720 (Top 20 UG with 3.7 GPA) and was rejected at HBS, CBS, Wharton but got into SOM and Tuck

Give it a shot. Gmat is on the lower end but no harm in trying. Worst case scenario you reapply.

Applied to H1B (lottery) last April 21 and got my i797 saying it’s effective 11/2021. I am also applying to change of status from L to H1 (thru current employer). Does that mean I can immediately work a new employer once I get the H1B status or should I wait until October of this year?
