hey i just ended up giving my GMAT and scored very low in verbal section.
Score-600(Q49,V23)
My list of colleges that i applied to are as :
1)ISB, HYDERABAD,INDIA
2)AGSM,SYDNEY,AUSTRALIA
3)MELBOURNE SCHOOL OF BUSINESS, VIC,AUSTRALIA
4)SCHULICH SCHOOL OF BUSINESS, CANADA

I would suggest two things before you apply to your target schools .First, retake GMAT aiming for at least 650+ . Second, work for another year or so to improve your profile.

Masters of Finance programs will be within your reach. They generally care more about a high quant score - which you have.

For the MBA, I'd have to agree with Poonam. With 19 month of work experience, you can give it some more time--get some more real world experience. Retaking the test may also be a good way to boost your candidacy.

The scores in the real GMAT actually vary in the range +/- 50 from the practice tests.
