Evaluate my profile - 590 GMAT - Cass & Imperial in London? [#permalink] New post 01 Jul 2008, 14:20
Hello all,

Please evaluate my profile if possible.

I am a hispanic female, 26, and my fiance will be taking a two year job position with his company in london starting in nov 08. I plan to join him later in 2009 and go to school for my mba there as opposed to taking 2 years FT, or 3 PT and completing it in the states.

I took the gmat twice - 590 first time, 530 second time - yes it went down! :(

I graduated with a BBA in Finance and Information Systems, minor in Marketing with a 3.6/4.0 GPA from a top US university. and have 5 years of Banking/Finance experience with Bank of America and a BBVA owned US bank - all in commercial lending, and on the credit risk side of banking (ie. underwriting, credit risk analysis).

I'm also fluent in spanish and english.

I know the avg gmat for Cass and Imperial is in the 640 range, but do you think my University background coupled with my work experience will be enough to overlook my 590?

Thank you all!

ambition6,

If you were applying to U.S. B-schools where 640 is the average GMAT score then I would say that you have a good chance, primarily because as a Hispanic woman you are from a sought-after applicant pool in the U.S. "Underrepresented minorities" may not have quite the same special status in Europe, but I have to believe that Hispanic females are not a common applicant type at Cass and Imperial and that therefore they will cut you some slack for your GMAT. Since your 590 is not too far from their 640, I do think you have a decent chance at these schools. But make sure you execute well in your application.

Good luck,
