Hey Linda! I want your advice. I am an Indian male however NOT an International applicant. I graduated from Houston Baptist University with 3.4 GPA, majoring in CIS and Business. I was planning on applying to the University of Texas MBA program. However I took the GMAT for the second time and only scored a 590 not really much of an improvement from the first attempt which was a 560. I have roughly 4 years of Work experience in the Business/ IT energy area. I also know that I know the UT only computes your undergrad GPA using only the last 60 hours of your undergrad grades, which I have calculated to be around 3.6 in my situation. Do I have a shot at all, or I should hunker down and retake the GMAT aiming for a 650 or better and then apply in the(UT has a rolling application process instead of rounds)? Thanks in advance!!
If you want to have a serious shot at UT, I recommend hunkering down and retaking the exam.
