Chances with a 640 score [#permalink] New post 24 Sep 2013, 22:25
Hi,

I just gave my GMAT y'day and scored a not so good 640 (V33, Q46). I goofed up the RC section ( I know I am terrible at that). Not sure if I should re-take. Thinking to give a shot (inspired by a lot of low score yet got a good college stories) and apply for the following courses (and if doesn't work out will retake working on my RC). Request to help me understand my chances.

Hi,

I don't think your GMAT will pose a problem at both of these b-schools, although your work experience is less. You may find yourself among the youngest applicants there, as the programs have a criterion of minimum 3 years of work experience.

I would think that with these two disadvantages, the rest of your application must be stellar. You seem to have done good stuff at work and held leadership positions outside office. Build them into your essay and recommendation storylines as that will help a whole lot.

Also, be sure of what your career goals are and how will these particular programs help you achieve them?

Hi Namita,
Thanks for the feedback. How important would be the workex in the selection process? Would it be a roadblock?
I have 4 months degree project experience apart from a 2 months internship. Does it make up for the difference?

I was thinking for the same reason that since my workex is on the lower side a good gmat score should make up for it. Not sure if I should reappear.
