Another profile evaluation :) [#permalink] New post 29 Aug 2010, 13:25
Hi,

I am yet another hopeful MBA 2011 candidate, and would appreciate some assistance in my profile evaluation (my first post):
- 26 years old
- GMAT 640 (Q45, V32, AWA 6.0), second time, 590 first time
- MSc. Software Engineering, BSc. Hons Computer Science from top ranked UK universities
- 4 yrs work experience in tech consulting
- Scandinavian National, with Asian background
- Both in professional and academic terms, I have spent considerable time abroad, mainly in Europe and Asia

I am hoping to get into the following (in order of choice):
- INSEAD
- Columbia
- IMD
- LBS
- Kellog (AMBA, 1yr)
- Oxford - Said Business School
- Cambridge - Judge Business School

How do you assess my chances, is my GMAT score too low? Or will I have a reasonable shot with a good application package?

Thanks in advance!

You might have a shot at Said and Judge, but basically I think your GMATis just too low for these programs or at least a major obstacle to acceptance.

Hi Linda,

Thanks for a brutal, but useful answer :)

I am now looking at possibilities for a re-take.

Awais,

I don't want to be brutal! But I do think a retake is in order if those are your target programs..

Best,
Linda
