Hello All,

I just took the GMAT and got a 620 (42 Q, 33 V). I never really learned much about sentence correction or Math in general during my studying process, which was a total of 6 weeks. I have one year of work experience in Banking and I am looking to go part-time or full time to get an MBA.

My goal is to become a financial analyst so that when I open my own business in the future I will be able to do all of the financials.

I am wondering if it would be wise to forget about applying to PSU Full Time (for 2013 when I'll have 26 months work experience, CMU Tepper FlexTime (I have a 2.98 GPA from a very good private liberal arts school in PA and majored in Economics), and Pitt Part-Time.

My new thought is to sign up for Magoosh for the 50 point guarentee and shoot to get a 700+ and I will have 26 months experience by the time I am ready for admissions.

The reason I believe this would be smart is it could possibly get me a scholarship to a school rather than simply gaining admission.

Any thoughts/advice/ insight would be greatly appreciated!

I believe 620 GMAT is on the lower side, so I would also go with you r' new thought' of retaking the GMAT and aim for 700+.
Also, your GPA is very low, so to make up for that you will need to enhance other parts of your application : your work experience, extra curricular activities, community service experience etc. Keeping that in mind, 26 months experience is nor enough. So consider gaining 1-2 years of work experience and improve your GMAT score before you start your application process.

I can live with that, after thinking about it today, I have come to the conclusion that in a year I will:

Have a better job and 2 years full time employment, 3 internships
Have volunteered for a year for the largest food bank in the county
Have easily over a 650 on the GMAT

I appreciate your advice and believe my head is now in the right place.
