Hi ,

I just took my GMAT today and got 620 .I was expecting around 710 but could not achieve my target scrore .Im planning to retake it again next month hopefuuly might get better scores next time.

Currently with my 620 scores im wondering which b schools can i apply in Canada or USA.I request Experts to provide their feedback.

Here is the short summary of my profile:

1) 620 GMAT first attempt
2) 3.5 GPA
3) Work experience 4.8 years in IT( Current role IT analyst)

Earlier i was planning for MS in MIS but changed my mind later.Currently im looking for b schools which can provide mba course which covers IT Management or related stream.My dream was Rotman but now have to take opt for other b schools which suits my GMAT score.

Can you please guide me as im just confused after low gmat scores ...not sure which school to apply for and whats my probability of getting selected?Kindly help.

Hi Jevish,

Can you go into more detail about why you were expecting a 710?

1) How long have you been studying?
2) What resources have you been using?
3) How were you scoring on your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores)?
4) What were your Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores on the GMAT?

Since you have some idea of what you're looking for out of a School, you should be able to research Programs that 'match up' with what you're looking for. If you have specific Admissions questions, then you would likely find it beneficial to speak with an Admissions Expert about your overall profile. There's a Forum full of them here:

adding few more details..

First Gmat prep 690 (Q 49 ,V 37)
Second Gmat prep on the same day 620.
Veritas prep mock test 570 -590 (Quant was always above 44 and verbal was around 26-32)

I always got 50 ,49,48 and least was 44 in quant ,In actual exam ended up with 44 in quant.
In verbal i scores the average of what i was expecting.

My dream was Rotman but now with this score thinking to consider other b schools which are accepting 620 in gmat.
And i dont know why since yesterday im feeling that i should give exam again after 30 days ,since i strongly feel i can reach 700 easily next time.Please advice where should i step next .Kindly consider the deadline for b schools admissions as well?

Thanks,
Jevish d

Hi Jevish,

From what you've described, only your first CAT was close to 700 (all of the others were right around 600), so it's still not clear why you were expecting a 710 on the GMAT. I have a few questions about how you took your CATs:

1) Did you take the ENTIRE CAT each (including the Essay and IR sections)?
2) Did you take them at home?
3) Did you take them at the same time of day as your Official GMAT?
4) Did you ever do ANYTHING during your CATs that you couldn't do on Test Day (pause the CAT, skip sections, take longer breaks, etc.)?
5) Did you ever take a CAT more than once?

Before I can offer any suggestions for your studies, I need to know what study resources you have used so far.

Hi Jevish, as far as I know, now you can take GMAT again 16 days after your last one. So you dont have to wait until 30 days anymore...
