GMAT Question [#permalink] New post 18 Mar 2013, 17:33
Thanks in advance for any help.

My concern is mostly with my GMAT score. I am only applying to one program, which is the Ohio State part time program. They list 620 as their current average GMAT score. This number was 600 one semester ago.

Unfortunately I scored a 590 with a low quant score (36th percentile). My verbal percentile was 79.

My undergrad GPA was 3.59 from a respectable Big Ten school. My math grades were 3.0+ in all college math courses. I am not worried about any of the other admissions requirements as I will be able to present strong material, however I am very worried about my low GMAT quant score. I have a very small window to retake the exam after the 31 day period, but am worried about scoring even lower.

Maybe my only other concerns are my lack of community involvement, and my work experience duration, which is just over the 4 year minimum required by this program. The quality of my work is very good as a project manager for a large, well known corporation.

Any advice about my chances for getting accepted to the program would be very much appreciated.

Thanks.

I share your concerns. However, if you feel you won't do better on the GMAT, then do something else to show you are improving your quant skills. Sign up ASAP for MBAMath.com . Or take business quant classes online or at a local community college and get A's in them. do whatever you can to make that score less important by showing that it's obsolete.

Best,
Linda

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to give the GMAT another go in one month in order to make my application deadline of May 15.

My two GMATPrep scores were both 640's, and my four MGMAT tests were 600-620, so hopefully this is some indication that I may be able to score a little higher. I hear that the MGMAT tests have quant sections which are harder than the actual GMAT and GMATPrep, so hopefully my score next time around will be closer to my GMATPrep score.
