Help me connect the dots - explain how investing in good people somehow ignores the crash.
The return on going from mid 500s to mid 600s has to be astronomical. I'd find some way to figure out how many more questions you'd need to get right/what incremental concepts you need to master and then decide if retaking is worth it. Also try Manhattan GMAT - really solid self study books.Finally, I don't know your whole situation, but 60 hrs a week leaves you with plenty of time to study.
