5 Dings and only 1 Admit with a 710 on GMAT [#permalink] New post 29 Mar 2013, 00:25
Hi Everyone,

I’ve taken the GMAT thrice and have gone through the application process twice.

With 6yrs of IT experience, a highest GMAT score of 710, 11 dings and 1 admit (@ SMU – Cox w $$) over the last two years, and an aim to build a career in Strategy Consulting, is accepting the SMU – Cox admit a sensible decision? Or I should re-visit the application I prepared?

Your inputs will be highly appreciated.

Thanks!!

Hi there,

Congrats on SMU! I wish I could tell you yes or no, but as you know, this is a very personal decision. It does seem like you've put a lot into this process and tried your hardest. It's difficult for me to know how much room for improvement there is in your application approach without actually seeing it and getting to know you fully. At the surface it seems accepting SMU makes sense, but if you'd be really unhappy there, maybe it doesn't. Maybe it makes more sense to not pursue an MBA at all? Or, like you say, to try again for something else. But I think that if you're dead set on an MBA and you've already put in this much effort/this many attempts into the application process, accepting SMU is a logical choice.

In the end, it has to be your decision, but I hope this helps!
