Fourth Attempt - GMAT 620 (Q44, V31) [#permalink] New post 20 Jun 2013, 04:06

Hi,

I gave my GMAT on 19th June, and scored a 620 (Q44, V31). I seriously don't know if i should be happy or sad, since this was my fourth attempt. The history of my earlier scores is as follows.

First Attempt : 470 (don't remember the break up)
Second Attempt: 570
Third Attempt: 570
Fourth Attempt: 620 (Q44, V31)

I was averaging 650-680 in all my practice tests, and so i was expecting at least a 650. I felt happy in one way, cause i was struggling even to cross 600 and a lot of schools require a minimum 600 score. But also, I know a 620 score is not something to be proud of and I am still on border line. I have read alot of blogs and forum , and everyone says that retake the GMAT, and score around 650's. However, I am not sure if a 5th attempt would be a good idea?

Please advice me on the following:

1. Should i give a 5th attempt? Will it impact the way schools evaluate my profile?

2. My Profile is : 4.5 years work experience in consulting field. GPA 3.3. Masters in Accountancy.
I am aiming for schools like NUS, Warwick, HKU, Nanyang and Imperial college. What are my chances?

3. If I am not eligible for the above schools. Can someone please recommend me some universities, which i can apply to with the above gmat score.

Kindly help me out, I am really confused and feeling helpless. I don't want to retake GMAT, at the same time, I want to get into any top 50 universities.

for the colleges, I suggest getting ur profile reviewed..some UK colleges offer the same and u will get an idea of where u stand.. I remember I sent my profile review to CASS and they told me I wont make past round two :(

but things have changed since then..

Anyways U have come a long way my friend with a improvement of 150 in ur score.. don't loose hope..talk to colleges and see what they way..

Thanks for both the reply. I am in a very confused state at present, and what I see is that everyone is saying different things. Some people say I don't stand a chance in my dream universities and some say I do. So I guess the best thing is to go to each university and talk to them to understand better.

But I would really like to hear stories of people who have got in good colleges with a 620 score. If nothing, it gives me some hope.

Thank you.

See the thing is U have a good enough GPA to compensate for ur average score.. talk to colleges and see how ur profile fits in.. every college is unique and they look for uniqueness in ur resume.. lay emphasis on ur strong point..

don't worry.. have confidence and never loose hope
