Expert's post
Hello Clicks, thanks for your question.

For top programs, I typically recommend an overall GMAT score of 700+, with verbal and quantitative scores of 80%+. Your quant score, especially, is a bit low for top schools. Increasing your GMAT would help your chances with the top ten programs. Of course, that’s if you have the time to prep and if you think that investment would actually pay off with a higher score. It will take time away from your essays, of course.

Regardless of scores, I believe your competitiveness will come down to the quality of your leadership experience in and out of work. Can you draw upon “moments” when you truly led: influenced individuals and organizations, drove results, took initiative?

If you are determined to go to business school next year, the safe move is to include some safer choices among your targets to mitigate risk.

Best of luck,
Brian
