GMAT 700(V38,Q48) Need guidance/suggestion for applications [#permalink] New post 13 Jul 2015, 19:12
Hello experts

I finished my second attempt of gmat with the score stated above. My first attempt was 680(v34,q50). I am quite saddened by the fact that my Q score reduced. I am planning to take gmat for the third time but I am seeking some answers before I go for it.

My background : I am an engineer with an MS degree, working in CA and want to switch my career track. I am taking online Business related courses to support my application and to gain some preliminary knowledge of the field.
1. I am planning to apply to top 10 Bschools and I am not sure what score I should be comfortable with. I want to achieve 750 with q50/51 but I would like to know how much does gmat really count, given that I do not have significant knowledge or experience of the business domain in general.

2. Even if I achieve 730+ score, what else should I focus on to make equip myself with necessary skills?

Any other suggestions to make my profile stronger are welcome. I am currently trying to gain as much knowledge and develop as many skills as possible to become the right candidate for the top 10 Bschools.


Thanks !

Undergrad GPA, major, and quality of institution?

Number of years of work experience?

Leadership/extracurriculars/sports/languages/community service?

Plans, specifically, AFTER business school?

...

GMAT matters, to a point. It counts in school rankings, so adcoms care about it, and it is a better predictor of your classroom success than GPA is. You should be within the "middle 80%" range to be competitive (you can find these by Googling "[School name] MBA class profile"). How long have you been studying, and what round do you want to apply in?
