You are below the average GMAT for most of these schools. You will not be a competitive candidate unless your work experience is unusually valuable or rare, especially if your GMAT component scores are not in balance.

Maybe Emory could be a good option? It has better placement into consulting than most of the schools you mention.

What are your goals? Keep in mind that if you're not a resident of these countries, and plan to stay in one of them after graduation, there will be visa issues.

Of course, visa issues make me to rethink to choose MBA program. I really want to pursue MBA in USA, and have experience there.

If you do not have US permanent residency, then studying in the USA may not help you. Consider Canada or Australia instead.

To be fair, it could help, depending on his/her expectations. Doing an MBA can give you the opportunity to get the OPT work permit, which is a one-year post-study visa. If they just wanted to work in the country for a year, then an MBA could help.

And a STEM course would give two years but, as you guessed, I think this person might not have realistic expectations.
