I'm trying to be as realistic as possible as I enter the application process. I know that my GMAT scores are not very good and most US two programs would not be giving a value for it, though I will seek to leverage my experience with HSBC and working in cross cultural environment as much as possible . Please share your thoughts on the same.
Thanks in advance.
Unfortunately, the 610 GMAT pretty much rules out any top/good MBA program for you. I just don't see a way around your retaking the GMAT before selecting appropriate programs.
