Hi Lvnguyen87,

Thanks for posting. For your application, I am concerned about your GMAT score. Understand that your test score is self-reported on your business school application, so admissions teams will only focus on your highest score.

The reason that I worry is that with Simon, for example, the middle 80% range GMAT scores is 630-710. This means that with your score, you would be in the bottom 10th percentile. This does not necessarily mean you will not be accepted, but it is not a preferable position to be in.

Hope this was of help.

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team

Thank you for your prompt reply Stacy

I am also concern about my GMAT score as well but hopefully through the essay portion and AWA I will be able to show my proficiency in the English Language. The verbal score, if anything, was not representative of my scores in my practice and past actual gmat exam. I would take it again but I figured that, since my funds are now running low, I needed to save what was left for the application fees.

So long as I can prove my leadership skills, academic skills, and communication skills do you think that my experience in the ball park of what a top mba program is looking for?
