What is your ielts score? If its low then look for pre MBA courses which develop your quant and English skills. Your GMAT score is so low that I think you currently might not learn much for any programme which would accept you. With better preparation you will get into a much better programme with a much higher return on investment.

I'm not sure that a score of six will be enough for admission into an MBA, but there are pre-MBA programmes like:
http://www.unb.ca/saintjohn/sjcollege/premba/index.html
http://www.wlu.ca/page.php?grp_id=1928&p=20439

If you improve your English then your GMAT score will improve dramatically.

If you have a slightly higher IELTS score, your GMAT might make some US schools accessible:
Sacred Heart University (Welch) (CT)
University of Tennessee--Martin (TN)
SUNY Institute of Technology--Utica/Rome (NY)
Delaware State University (DE)
University of New Orleans (LA)
Texas Southern University (Jones) (TX)
Texas A&M University--Commerce (TX)
Texas A&M International University (TX)
Clark Atlanta University (GA)
Francis Marion University (SC)

This is a good suggestion - maybe you can take some English classes? Additionally, I'd recommend retaking the GMAT, after some kind of focused preparation. This can range from taking practice tests online to getting personalized or group instruction. A score of 450 is pretty low - if you can boost this even moderately it would look much better.

Just to clarify: you have 1200 words in a response to a single question, or is that the total for all four responses?

If it's the latter, you need to find some way to more fully explain yourself and your goals. HEC's essay prompts are pretty open (explain yourself, explain your goals, explain your passions, describe a personal accomplishment,) and if you have a clear sense of where you want to go, this should be a problem.

They say "around 750 words," so I'd think that anything between 700 and 800 words per response would be acceptable.
