Four times into GMAT and still max score 600 [#permalink] New post 22 Apr 2012, 00:20
Hi Gurus

It is good that GMAT scores are not averaged :)

Actually I am looking for a serious guidance here - if any one can help.

I had 4 shots at GMAT till date but haven't scored more than 600 :( Scores are - 560, 600, 490 and 550.

Indian / male / IT techie by background can manage recos from Sr. Exec.

GPA score is 3.1 on 4.

Lots of extra curricular and Social responsibility programs to boast about but never had them written down (as i think if you do a social responsibility - you do not do it to secure admission to a good school, you do it because you like to do it) - is this right?

This is April month, by the time I would take admission I would have had 4 years of work exp in a reputed US based MNC and 1 year in German based automobile Company (IT consulting for the same)

Can any one help me which schools are within my reach? I have read about posts which states how to manage a better Grad school without a good GMAT score. I want to pursue my MBA in Operations Management, specialized in Supply Chain Management - This is the area of consulting my current work profile deals with.

I believe that there are schools out there which are best and which are good / well-to-do. How do I assure myself that if I get admitted into a good / well-to-do school I must make the most out of it.

Many thanks in advance !

Also keep in mind when you select the school of choice

MSU Broad avg. gmat 640
Penn State (Smeal) avg. gmat 650
Purdue (Krannert) avg. gmat 660
Babson College (Olin) avg. gmat 624
Iowa (Tippie) avg. gmat 650

Like was mentione Broad has a great program that has lower admission requirements than other top schools for supply chain. Penn state and Purdue have good supply chain programs especially with the ability to take electives from other departments which they are top 15-20 in those areas.

Babson and Iowa and good schools with decent all around programs.

All schools above have decent average starting salaries which is important to consider before taking on significant loans.

Good luck.

Hello,

Since you have already taken GMAT four times, i believe now you can work on your rest of application.

Do not loose your heart, give your best to prepare your story and i believe you would be a good fit for the schools suggested on this thread.

You have not mentioned your splits - but you can surely defend your low gmat with supporting strengths, there are ways to do the same in your app - essays and reco.

Good Luck
