5 Dings and only 1 Admit with a 710 on GMAT [#permalink]  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 aalriy,

Thanks for posting. For the answer, it really depends on the person. What is most important is that you speak to current students, alumni, and the career center at Cox. Particularly if there is a company you are interested in working for post-graduation, you should know whether they recruit at the business school. The more data points you can collect, the better your decision will be in the end.

Best,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team

I agree with Stacy, only you can make the decision for yourself, so get all the info you need to make the best decision for you. On the plus side, there wouldn't be much difference between your current situation and 4 dings/2 admits, but you'd be a lot less happy with 6 dings/0 admits. So at least the decision is all yours whether to go to b-school or not, and that's a pretty nice choice to have!

Best of luck!
-Ron
