Hi!!
I started my GMAT preparation in March this year. Scored 660,720,730,720 in all my GMAT prep mocks. Today I sat for the real test and ended up with a score of 690(q49, v34). Verbal was my strength. I had scored 39 to 40 on all my gmat prep tests. So I'm a bit dissapointed.

My main question is what should I do now? Should I sit for it once more(personally I don't want to) or should start the groundwork for my applications?

Please take a look at my profile summary:

DEMOGRAPHIC: Indian, Male(25 years)

EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND:
B.E(engineering)in instrumentation and control from a reputed Indian University (MANIPAL)

CGPA: 7.95(APPROX 2.9 OR 3 ON A SCALE OF 4)

WORK EX:
3 years as Executive instrumentation engineer( maintenance and small scale projects) in BASF (world's biggest chemical company).

At present I am responsible for maintenance activities, monitoring of maintenance costs and key performance indicators, contractor evaluation, SAP related procurement activities and execution of small scale projects. I report to the manager, instrumentation and lead a team of 8 technicians and several contract employees.

PRESENT LOCATION:
Mumbai

EXTRACURRICULAR:
1) A few college club memberships.
2)Organizer in 3 college and department level events.
(EXTRA CURRICULAR IS MY WEAK POINT)

MY TARGET FIELD OF SPECIALIZATION: OPERATIONS/SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT

MY TARGET B SCHOOLS/UNIVERSITIES:

1) NATIONAL UNIVERSITY OF SINGAPORE
3) NANYANG TECHNICAL UNIVERSITY
4) INDIAN SCHOOL OF BUSINESS
5) S.P JAIN GLOBAL MBA PROGRAM
6) KELLEY, INDIANA UNIVERSITY

What's your opinion? With this profile and a 690 GMAT score will be able to make it to my targeted schools?

I know I don't have a great profile and that is why I was aiming for a higher score...But from what I have read on forums and from my interaction with some of my friends 690 is not that bad.

So what do you think?

Yes. I'd tend to agree that 690 is a pretty decent score. I've had students with 700+ scores not get interview calls from some of the above schools, and conversely, some with lower scores get calls and convert them. Also, I believe your score is higher than the average score at most of the schools you have listed. So I think that you have a good chance, but of course you'll need to work on the other aspects of your application. I don't think the 690 should break your application.

Having said that, there's still a lot of time for even Round 1 at these schools, so if you're not convinced, you can take another shot at the GMAT and get it over the 700 magic figure!
