Hello all,

I have given my GMAT exam on 26th...very disappointed with my Verbal score!

Quant 50 92
Verbal 30 56
Total 670 84

Can someone please suggest some top universities for which I might stand a chance for full-time MBA in general management. I have an experience of 4 years in database domain.

Thanks,
Sravanth


You can try University of Texas at Austin (McCombs), University of Minnesota, University of Michigan (Ross), Cornell University (Johnson), Emory University (Goizueta), among others. Check the rankings of universities and their range of GMAT scores or their averages to see which schools would be suitable for you in terms of your GMAT score.

Try looking at the US News Rankings for the best business schools in the United States and also check those rankings from the Economist magazine and business week. Some of these may have the average GMAT score and the range of GMAT scores of those MBA Programs. I hope this helps.

sravanth,

I just took mine on the 16th and got the same exact score 670, different split on verbal and quantitative though. I would say that with a 670, you can apply to every school that you think would be a good fit with your overall background. With the top schools, 670 is in the range of acceptance, but I believe that GPA will be more important and work experience as well. Your essays will likely also have a big impact because the more your entire story comes together, I believe the less your score will be emphasized.

If I were in your shoes, I would think about visiting the schools you are really interested in, and find a way that your entire package (scores, essays, work experience) fit for that school and what you want to accomplish in the future. It will help in bringing about an unique way you can make a difference for that specific school and class.

sravanth,

I believe those three schools are not out of the realm of possibility, although for Sloan, its average GMAT school is quite high. I think the approach I would take for Sloan would be to get to know the admissions counselors early in the process, visit the campus for class and a tour, and talk to alumni and current students about the program. The more initimate you know a particular school, the higher the likelihood your essays and overall fit will make sense in your application. Each school has unique value offerings and if you blend well with a particular focus the school concentrates in, I think the overall story makes sense.

ISB is bit difficult as they tend to invite people from IT background only with 750+ score.

Are you indian? While 670 is within range of some top schools (albeit the lower end of the range), Indians generally have to score on the higher end, like 720-760. You probably wouldn't get into any top b-school with a 670 because all the top schools have an almost endless supply of Indian applicants with 720+ GMAT scores. I suggest you retake and shoot for 720+
