Clear Vision but GMAT not that great. Request for Review [#permalink] New post 05 Jun 2007, 13:08
First of all I thank you for the time you take to give your opinion in clear and precise terms.

So, here goes mine

I am an Indian, Male 31yrs old, living and working in Germany for the past 5 years.

Diploma in Aircraft Maintenance Engineering (India) 91%
BTech in Computer Science (India) 77%
MS in Automation Systems (Germany) (2.0:German System)

Languages Spoken Fluently: English, German, my mother tongue

I am working as a Development Engineer (project leader) for the last
3.5 years for a luxury car manufacturer in Germany. Job tasks include requirement analyses, function development and supplier coordination.
Also lead software tool development projects with companies in India and provide consulting for various departments of the company.

Always felt that I had the management skills through various cultural activities in college. Moreover, here in Germany I do community work for the local church. Dec 2005-Jan 2006, I was in Africa. Went there as a social worker to work with the Masai tribesmen. I was deeply moved by what I experienced there. This was the turning point. Took my time and by the end of 2006 I decided to go for an MBA. Basically looking for a change in career. Optimally would like to work for a non-profit organisation/ social services field.

A good school would be a perfect launch pad! Took the GMAT
GMAT: 610 Quant:46 (80%) Verbal: 28 (51%) AWA: awaiting

As you can see my GMAT score is not that balanced. I botched up the verbal. I am trying for admission next year (2009). I am not sure if I should consider taking up the GMAT again to improve my verbal (whats holding me back: my family commitments) or just apply? Would be nice if you could give some inputs!

Schools being considered
Schulich
LBS
Insead
IMD
Cambridge
Oxford

Thanks in Advance...

AugiTh,

You have an unusual profile, which will help you stand out from the crowd. I do think your GMAT is a bit low, so I would encourage you to take a prep course like Kaplan and raise that score. You will probably need to am for about a 700 or above for schools like LBS, Insead, and IMD.

Good luck,

That was nice! [#permalink] New post 11 Jun 2007, 01:19
Paul,

Thank you very much! I guess I would be taking up the GMAT again!
It felt great to hear your perspective and I should say helped convince my wife to allow me to go in for a second shot at GMAT :wink:
