640...same as my diagnostic score... [#permalink] New post 27 Oct 2007, 10:02
...and the same as a practice test last weekend...

My first essay was okay; the second was much better. I found myself scrambling towards the end of the Quanitative session but felt I had enough time to complete the Verbal (and felt pretty comfortable -- even on the passages and CR questions). I ended up doing better on the latter.

Needless to say, I feel ambivalent.

And I don't know if I have time for a re-take if I want to get my applications in by Round 2 deadlines.

face off,

Welcome to the 640 club...........

I can understand your feelings mate.........

Anyways, What colleges are you targetting???

What I'm doing now is I'm applying to a few colleges whose median is around the 640 mark.

For the higher ranked schools, I intend to apply once I retake my GMAT and then get my apps in R2....

Dunno whether its good strategy.I just wanted to get a couple of admits in R1 so I can be secure and then go all out in R2..........

For the schools to which I wish to apply, I below the median (though I think I'm still in the range). I've been told that a high undergrad business GPA (ie - way above their mean) can bolster this GMAT score for such programs; not sure how much I believe such things.

Well a good undegrad GPA does make a difference.......

So does decent experience (I'm banking on that).

Eventually, it also depends on what applicant pool you belong to..........

I fall in the Indian applicant category so, my scores arent that great for the pool.

But my experience is significantly different from most Indian applicants (I'm not an IT/software guy).

Finally, if you interview well and can put in good work in ur apps, you should be OK.

I know of people who can score in the 700's but are duds when it comes to interviewing......

Just my two cents
