Hi,

Got done with my GMAT yesterday with a score of 700 (Q: 40, V:35). I have a Master's degree in computer science with a GPA of 3.5 from a US school and 5 years of experience in US.

I am planning to apply to :
* Columbia
* Wharton
* NYU - Stern
* INSEAD
* LBS

Should I retake the GMAT :?:

I wonder if anybody can answer your query. You should provide more specific detail because GPA and GMAT is only one of many components. Remember that schools like INSEAD and H/S/W boast about the number of 800 applicants they reject each year. You should provide more info like what kind of work exp you have, what are your extra curricular activities are, what you plan to do with an MBA and after the MBA.

I am sorry, my bad. I assumed that GPA/GMAT information should be enough to know if a re-exam is required...

Regarding my work experience, I have 5 years of IT experience that includes over two years of product management experience. I have been invloved with various aspects of the typical software cycle from analysis, design, development and delivery.

Along with this I was heading the PR department of a not for profit organization. My primary responsibility was to build a sustainable donor base by establishing a solid branding.

I ran a marathon a couple of years ago, co-wrote the screenplay for a play and currently am working for a screenplay for a short film. :)

Thank you (and Paul) very much for the additional information. It makes a difference. You have a competitive profile for Columbia, Wharton, NYU - Stern, INSEAD, and LBS. International experience would really boost your chances, especially at Insead and LBS. I don't recommend you retake the GMAT.

Good luck!
