Do i stand a chance in top 20 schools? [#permalink] New post 30 May 2008, 13:42
Hello everyone,

Greetings!

With a 680 Gmat Score, will i get any admission in the top-20 schools? As i have exhuasted my gmat attempts, i couldn't improve more than this.

My profile is Indian, IT, Female - 28, Good Acads (4.0 GPA) , MS from ULL, Decent extra curricular activites.

I was dreaming about top-5 schools, but now i realized that it might not be practical with this score. I am not sure if a 4th attempt in gmat is good either. I have applied to ISB last year and got rejected with a 680 score.

Can any one please comment on female chances for getting into top-20 schools with above kind of profile? After looking at the 2008 No Admits thread with people of 770 scores i am stumped and now i feel 680 is not even worth of appying. Is it worth spending time and cost for the applications with this kind of score?

Thanks

post your profile in the admission consultants thread. 680 is a good score, with the right profile you could get in anywhere.

See my other thread with subject -- GMAT and admission to top school
I agree that 680 is a not a great score, but good enough to be in the range of the top schools. It is normal to get intimidated by the 750+ scores you see in forums, but there are 4-5 other components of the application that have equal weightage as GMAT. So focus on them.
Good luck !!
