Hello Everyone,

I've written Gmat today and got disappointing 550 Q 48 and Verbal 19.
I'm totally devastated with Verbal score and now i'm very exhausted and frustrated.
And in no situation to write the exam again and i want to apply with this score.
Since Round 2 deadlines for many UNIv are approaching and essays lot of work need to be done.

My Profile
Age: 25/M Non native speaker.
Exp: 4 yrs as software engineer.

Can someone advise me whether there is any chance of getting in atleast TOP 50 MBA univ... And it would be really good if you can name some univ as well.

Thanks in advance.

Br,

I'm not sure of all the statistics, but if you go to U.S. news and world report you can get the breakdown of stats of people going to the top 50 universities

Depending on your background and LOR you might have a chance, though I'd say at an Ivy league is very slim

As you can see on this list, there is nothing < 600 in this list. However remember that a high score doesn't guarantee anyone's acceptance and there is no minimum score to apply. How good is your letter writing/extra currics?

I recall another site where you can input GMAT score and it gives you a list of the unis you can apply to. With all that being said, I think your chances for a ivy league school are slim.

If you have time, I'd suggest you try and re-write the exam. Your quant score is quite good, but your verbal is definitely pulling you down.

Thanks for the response.

I'm giving a try and applying to Katz School Of Business and Depaul ( Chicago IL).
And few others but i'm hoping to get in any of above two schools.

Yea verbal is really pulling me down, but I'll give a try to few univs. If not I will apply for 2013 with proper GMAT score.
