Hi Linda,
I have one question? if someone seeks a consulting career after his MBA, does the Gmat score matter, keeping in mind the candidate is already in B-school (ex. Insead or Darden) with a score of 640/680.


My understanding is that some of the elite consulting firms use the GMAT as an initial screening tool and 700 is the cut-off.

Best,
Linda


ThanQ Linda.


You're welcome.

Hi Linda,

I have appeared for GMAT and have scored 600 only (quant 45 , verbal 28). I want to apply at NUS. Since NUS round 2 deadline is 30th Jan 2014 , Is there any chance of getting selected with such a low score or should i reappear ????
I have 2 years of experience in IT.

Please Help.
