640 VS solid international work experience [#permalink] New post 25 Nov 2004, 16:24
Dear Linda,


I have a question about my chances to be accepted.

I took a GMAT couple of days ago and got 640(Q45,79%/V33,69%). It was not my first attempt , one year ago I had 600 and 570 consequently. My TOEFL score is 260.

I am Russian female ,29. Working for Japanese-Korean sefood trading company as a marketing manager for 7 years. I am living in South Korea and can speak korean language. I have a bachelor degree in Engineering(Railway) from Russian University with 3,6 GPA ( we do not have a ranking system in Russia).

I am going to apply to HBS,Chikago,MIT,Michigan,LBS,INSEAD.

I know that my GMAT score is modest but , given that I have solid international experience , should I consider to re-take the test (there is not much time for big improvement since deadlines are approaching , though I feel I could perform better on math)? What are my chances if I apply with the current score ?

Looking forward to hearing from you .

Best Regards,
Oh Gal Len

Dear Oh Gal Len,

I wish I could be more encouraging, but even with the strong international experience, the schools on your list will be a real long shot. I'd definitely like you to consider adding some lower-ranked schools to your list--you could certainly get into a good program slightly lower in the rankings with your stats, especially if you also have good extracurriculars and community involvement as well as the international work experience.

Whatever you decide, best of luck to you!
Sonia
