Hi zahramirzayeva,

Whtat I understand is that your gmat score is above the avg gmat score of your desired school. If that's the case then, I think you should focus on your application now.

Best of luck!!!

Well it depends.
1) What does "limit" mean?
1a) "No less than";
1b) the lower bound of the 80% range (with top 10% and bottom 10% removed;
1c) the average score of past year's class?

2) Do you feel you have the (2a) background and (2b) ability to present your own skills as a good marketer =)

3) do you intend to apply for financial aid (to the school itself or to outside organizations that provide aid)

4) do you depend on such aid?

5) Do you have 3-5 months at your disposal to prepare a bit more?

6) Is this the only school you are applying to? Would you consider better schools if you had a better score?

If 1c is true and if 2a and 2b are true, but 4 and 5 are not - then, indeed, go for it and focus on the rest of your application.

If 1a or 1b or 3 or 4 or 6 are true, it would be probably better to bite the pain and study some more (if 5 is true too =)

Good luck, Zahra!

thanks for comprehensive information.despite the fact that it's not clearly stated what this score limit actually means in school's website i think this is the score limit which students are allowed to apply in the case they get it.so if someone has this score they may apply for program.students who get less than this limit are not allowed to apply.this is all i know.in respect to other issues-i have to take TOEFL exam too and this is the another requirement of school.but i'm quite confident about whatever my TOEFL score will be.there will be no interview and acceptance to program will be based on documents and scores only.i also have strong recommendation and intention letter.
actually this is one of the school 2 schools i want-but gmat requirements for both school is the same-550.anyway i will apply to my second choice school too.application period for my first choice schooln is in may but second choice school is in june.i plan to apply for both of them.any further comment please
