Assessing my chances due to low IR [#permalink] New post 20 Feb 2014, 22:42
Hi,

I just gave my GMAT yesterday and scored a decent 730.

IR-3 - 23rd Percentile.
Q-49 - 81st Percentile.
V-40 - 90th Percentile.
Overall-730 - 96th Percentile.

Yes, exactly, the pain point is 3 in IR. Graphs and DI have never been a problem. In fact the low score was very surprising and annoying. I cannot recollect to have scored as low as 3 in any of the mocks that I gave.

Anyway, the main reason why I am posting this is because I want to know the impact of IR score on my application. I am planing to apply in 2016/2017 after a good 2-3 years of experience.
The schools that I am looking at are:
ISB, INSEAD, NUS, IE, IESE, Columbia, HAAS, Duke, NTU, Tepper, Booth, Darden, Tuck.

Just to fill in the experts with a brief description of my profile,
I have an okayish profile with a good number of extra curricular activities and leadership accolades, including an international exchange program. However, I have a poor gpa of 6.3/10 from my undergrad college. I'm currently working in EMC as an Associate consultant, working primarily on Big Data Analytics.

Thanks in advance :)

You should be fine. Schools are not yet using IR as an admissions evaluator and since it doesn't reflect in your overall score, which is used for rankings purposes and school average, etc. your score will only help you at your target schools. Your GPA shouldn't be a problem given your GMAT score (GPA is one of the more forgivable components--especially a converted GPA, which is even less accurate than US-based GPA). Finally, with big data being all the rage as of late, your timing should be good to get some attention from your targets assuming you craft a compelling application. Let us know if you need help doing that. I don't see any reason why you should't get an offer from one or more of your target schools based on what I see in your profile.
