I am graduating in May and hoping to enter an MBA program in the fall of 2012. I took the GMAT in September and got a 430, which made me feel awful. I have registered to take it again at the end of January and I have been studying pretty rigorously for it. I purchased the Manhattan books
and recently scored a 560 (38Q, 28V) on the GMAT Prep test. My hope is to get my scores up to 600 before the time comes to take the exam again.
I have a 3.41 GPA, but expected to rise to at least a 3.47 by the end of the semester. I am currently interning for UBS Financial and hoping that with that and my other on-campus experience, it will be enough. I currently serve as President of my fraternity, VP of Leadership Development for a honor society, and a member in 2 other honor societies as well.
The schools I am applying to are:
St. Johns University
Appalachian State University
University of Tennessee
University of Mississippi
Any help or words of encouragement are greatly appreciated. Thanks
