Can you please higlight my weak and strong points and whether it is enough to go ahead and apply in R1. Please advise in case you think I definitely need to improve certain things before I should apply. As you would have understood, I am concerned about GMAT score. I understand it is on the lower side and it matters, but can't good reccos, and strong essay make it up for it. A straight question - Is it a disaster using which I should not apply?
Thanks a lot.
