Post MBA goals - To Work in a strategy consulting role for three years and start my own venture in Healthcare sector
Schools Shortlisted - INSEAD, IMD, Columbia for Jan 2014 Intakes respectively

I want to take a suggestion, as to, how much do i need to target my GMAT score, So as to get an admit in the above said schools.

Leadership Activities: I organised a team of 12 members in 2008, who help me in raising funds and educate financially challenged students, for their Graduation and Post graduation studies. Till date we have helped two students, who are now working as Software Engineers in Infosys and Accenture. I am looking forward to help more students in the coming years, besides pursuing MBA.

Please hint me, at what score should i aim to crack down the admits.

Many thanks.

To be competitive at your target programs, you need over a 700 and a balanced score. For IMD, you could maybe have a little lower score.

Best,
Linda
