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.

Hey Linda,
Hope you're doing well.

I gave the GMAT last month and scored 660. I'm planning to apply to:

1.Kellogg
2.Virginia :Darden
3.Michigan Ross
4.Rotman
5.York
6.Queen's
7.NUS

I've been working since the past three years. I've got experience in Automobiles,Banking, and Marketing. I'm currently working as a copywriter and my post MBA goal is to work in advertising /brand management. Strategic/creative role.

What do you think my chances are at my chosen schools?

Best,
Kshitij
