I'm applying to environmental management programs as well and many of these programs require either a 1000 or 1100 combined on the old scale.

Your verbal converts to about 360 (21st percentile) and your quantitative converts to about 450 (16th percentile), so you're well below where you should be by a lot. I highly suggest taking it again and just committing to a good study programs. I used the official ETS study book and the one from Princeton Review and it helped a lot!
