Take the GMAT again, no question. You have plenty of time, and if you were consistently scoring 700+ before, you can score higher than a 640. You might be able to get in with that score, but it means that everything else in your application will need to be stellar. No sense in having that hurdle if you know you can do better.

I'll pass along the advice of a Kellogg admissions officer, because it applies everywhere: if you score (materially) below the school's average on the GMAT on your first try, the expectation is that you will take it again. Most people take the GMAT more than once, so they want to see you at least try to bring up your score. Even if you get the same score, at least you made a second attempt.

Good luck!

For part-time you might have been competitive with a 640, not for full-time. Not saying you couldn't make it happen if everything else was perfect and luck was really on your side, but very unlikely. What is likely though is that you can score much better on the GMAT! Like everyone else has said, definitely re-take it. And make sure you're replicating the test conditions as closely as possible when taking practice tests. Full essays, timing, everything.

I scored a 600 on my first attempt and was completely devastated. But I ended up getting a 710 on my second attempt. I studied both times and still had a 110 point difference, so I'm sure you can bring yours up!

HI,

I am so relieved to see a female forum. please guys help in evaluation of my profile. I have not started applying and I am already demoralized.


The problem is I have shown my profile to many people and I have received different verdicts and assessments, additionally my consultant is really pessimistic.


I am really confused about how important GMAT is. I know that 700+ looks good but how far is 690 worse than 700 mark ?
I sure have no hope for Harvard , standford , yale etc. I am being realistic.
But I wish to now if 690 is as bad as to deserve to go to 2nd tier universities ?

I have not invented anything or started any company but I have learned leadership skills when I mentored and led team in volunteering.

AND I hope you could give some idea about my chances of getting in the following universities.

1) Georgetown university - McDonough

The project was million dollar marketing department.

Other than handling my own responsibilities . I created an effective cost cutting model for inter- project training programs and also participated as trainer in my technology skill field.

4) Extracurriculars:
