Worth retaking, you might qualify for scholarships if you get a higher score

Given you are a consultant, you are in a competitive demographic. I suggest retake the GMAT for sure. If you can pull off even a 720, that would make a difference to the schools. I had a 720 and tried retaking twice - sadly could not improve my score.... so had to live with it
