bad integrated score...but 700 in actual with 5 awa [#permalink] New post 15 Oct 2012, 18:41
Hi

I am a 35 yrs Indian IT guy with 12 years of experience in technical and management together. I recently took my first GMAT and scored decent in all sections except IR.
Quant: 50, Verbal: 33, AWA:5, Total:700. But surprisingly I just got 1 on IR, must have done something terribly wrong.

I am planning to apply for part-time MBA program at Booth or Kellogg. Should I plan to take GMAT again or should I go ahead and apply with my current scores? Will low IR score hurt my chances of admission?

Thanks in Advance.

It's really hard to say since the IR section is so new. Most schools say they look at the IR, but aren't really weighing it this year. On the other hand, scores on the margins do stand out. Without the IR, your GMAT is competitive. I would say apply and see how you do. If you get in, great. If you don't, obviously you will need to retake. Hopefully they will see the score as anomalous.

Best,
Linda
