I have a similar background. Have you tried retaking the GMAT to get above a 700?

I did but my score went down 😭

Consider applying to MLT, if you have a year. If not you’ll likely be fine without. Be sure to hone your story. Your GMAT is okay, the only thing you may want to consider is if your Quant score could be higher, or if you need to demonstrate quant strength else where in your profile.

When did you apply and when did you hear back?

Good chances apply through consortium and/or MLT (potentially take a year to go through their program)

How did you get into your area of law? I have been licensed for 5 years and I still don't know where I ultimately want to be. I started as a line attorney and after 3 years, I moved to a non-litigation position working for the state. I feel lost. I have thought about getting MBA to compliment my JD. I was a good litigator but I had trouble turning off my brain and being present with my family when I was a litigator, so I don't think I would want to go back.
