Average GMAT score ! Chances at Ryerson! [#permalink]
08 Oct 2013, 20:59
I completed my GMAT examination yesterday and was shocked to see a score of 640 (Q47, V31). This inspite of the fact that i had been scoring in the range of 690 to 730 in each and every mock that i had given in the past 3 to 4 months before the exam. Moving on from here, I dont plan to retake the GMAT as I have already invested ample amount of time and effort on the first one itself (including quitting a steady job, to study).
I have 4 years of work experience in one of the top 3 IT companies in India, as a Senior Software engineer. An Academic GPA of 3.5. I am looking at doing my MBA from Canada (Toronto to be specific) and had shortlisted a few universities (namely, York , Rotman, McMaster, Ted Rogers). Now however, with a 640 in hand I am only looking at Ryerson University and would like to know if I stand a good chance to get into Ryerson University. My goal is to specialize in Marketing management and be able to contribute to the FMCG sector in Canada as I have always been inclined to this sector for many reasons.
Although disappointed with a score of 640, I do not intend to get bogged down by it and am trying to do whatever i can with this score and take it forward from here. Please let me know what are the possibilities.
