700...How are my chances? [#permalink]
17 Oct 2010, 10:49
OK, I finally took the GMAT! Ended up with a 700 (42Q/42V) and expecting a 5.5. or 6.0 AWA. SO relieved to be done with that ordeal!
I told myself that, if I scored 700+, I would apply to more competitive programs. As such, I've narrowed my selection down to the following 9 schools:
Is 9 too much? I don't want to tire my recommenders, and need to make sure I have enough time to make each application great.
Would appreciate any thoughts and help!
