640 ON GMAT PLEASE ADVISE!!! [#permalink] New post 10 Oct 2007, 14:20
Hi!

I just got done with my GMAT today and scored a 640 (Q 41 V37)

I have sent my scores to MSU-Broad, Ohio State, Kelley and Rice.

I am a business gradutae from India and have close to 5 years of experience.

my acads are above average (GPA 3.2 ) and I have worked in the commodity trading and supply chain domain all this while.

I have had stints in Europe, Africa and the middle east.

However, I am wondering whether my score is good enough for the above mentioned colleges.

Also, I was wondering whether Vanderbilt might be a good bet considering my scores.

I am thinking about whether to retake the GMAT...............


Do you think I will be able to get through to the colleges of my choice with my score????

Ashish,

Yes, I think you could get into all of those four schools and Vanderbilt too with your 640, which is right at their median/average scores (though a bit lower than Ohio State's). If you think you can raise the score without taking time away from preparing the best application possible then, yes, retake it, but you are competitive at these schools with a 640.

Good luck,

Thanks for your feedback Paul,

I have a question though.

The deadlines for most schools that I am applying to is around the 15th of November.

However, the earliest I can now take the test is the 19th of November.

I was wondering if I did retake the test and at the same time got all my app stuff in by th first deadline, would my application be considered in the first round itself or the second round.

Since I would be retaking the GMAT after the first deadline is over, how would they evaluate my application??

Also, should I mention it in my application that i am retaking the test????

Ashish,

You will have to ask each school what their policy is in that situation. It's a fair question to ask them. You should definitely tell them you're planning on retaking the GMAT. If you don't they may not know to hold off on reviewing your app until the new score comes in. My sense is that they would consider your application as a first-round application especially since you will be submitting your earlier GMAT score with your app--so you met their deadline with a full app. So explain your situation to them and ask them what their policy is.

Good luck,
