Profile Evaluation for Part-Time MBA - GMAT 530


I'm hoping to get some advice on what I should do in regards to applying to Part-Time MBA programs with my profile stats below. I recently took the GMAT, albeit much more unprepared than I'd like, and received a disappointing score of 530. With that being said, I don't want to take it again unless absolutely necessary. Since I'm applying for Part-Time MBA programs, will this be an issue? Or will the rest of my "profile" make up for it?

Undergrad GPA: 3.2
Years Work Experience: 5 post college. 2 with a Fortune 200 company, 3 with a well respected privately held company in the same marketplace. 3 positions total with advancement.
GMAT: 530 (Q: 32, V 31) IR: 6

I plan to apply to the following schools:
1) University of Minnesota - Carlson (Part-Time MBA)
2) UC - Boulder (Part-Time MBA)
3) UC - Denver (Part-Time MBA)

Any feedback you can provide would be appreciated.

Typically GMAT scores are a lot less competitive for part-time programs than full-time ones.
