I gave my GMAT exam today and scored disappointing 580 I know its not a good score but still wanted to know are there some good colleges in US/ Canada that I can look forward to or I am better off giving another shot at the GMAT. I am an Indian IT male and have work experience of 3yrs and GPA of 2.5 with some extra curricular's as well. Really looking forward to some advise

Hi there,

My best advice would be to give it one more shot, because schools take the highest score... so you've not much to lose, really. And a higher score can mean admission to a better program, which can lead to a better job and potentially even a higher starting salary... so it can be a long-term investment for sure! It's quite common to take it more than once and some admissions officers have even said they wonder why someone does NOT try again if they receive a score well below the average at a given program. Good luck!

Hi,

Thanks for your advice will try for GMAT once more by Feb since the deadlines for R2 for Fall 2014 will almost be gone by then so will try for Spring 2015, just want to know do most of the top US B-schools have Spring sessions as well and is the intake of International students same as Fall sessions.

Thanks

Hi there,

Most schools do start in Fall; some have January/spring starts or intakes, so it's best to research specific schools. As for international students, generally the in-take is the same but they are encouraged to apply as early as possible, as that allows more time for figuring out visas and funding if needed and just generally planning ahead for everything. Good luck!
