Hello! I took the GMAT yesterday and scored a 620 (Q38 V37). My average timed practice tests were 650 - 680 range.

Here is my profile:

Adam Candler, 28

GMAT 620
Hospitality Management Degree, San Diego State University
(A's in all math classes: econ, stats, calc, etc.)
Minor in Sustainable Tourism Management

5 years in the U.S. Navy as a Helicopter Search and Rescue Swimmer
-Indonesian Tsunami Relief
-Hurricane Katrina Relief
-Many times awarded, including several air medals and a fleet-admiral comendation.

3 years of hospitality management in San Diego. Dana Hotel and Marina.

Created, funded and carried out a 12-month worldwide sustainability field study and internship program for the flagship class in the Sustainability Tourism Management degree program at San Diego State University. Countries covered: Fiji, Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, (Malaysian and Indonesian Borneo), Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam and Singapore. A form of this program is available to current students looking for international experience with regard to global sustainability in tourism.

Managed a nightclub in Australia's Gold Coast for six months.

Managed a dive resort in Gili Trawangan, Indonesia for four months.

Currently the evening manager at the Four Diamond Regency Hotel on Manhattan's Upper East Side.

--> I only want one program: The UT Austin "CleanTech" emphasis in the MBA program. I am from Austin, my family is there, and my brother in law is raising my niece by himself out there.

Sorry for the life story, but I know that it all goes into the application.

My question is: Do I need to re-take my GMAT? I studied extremely hard and took a dozen practice tests (likely I took too many and psyched myself out). The 80% GMAT acceptance rate is 620-730 and I am clearly on the low end of that. My GPA is above average, but does that and my other experience make up for my GMAT score?

Hi, Adam. I answered you here: 620-gmat-applying-to-ut-austin-mba-121371.html.
I look forward to hearing your new score!

Jennifer Bloom, CPRW
