You have a nice profile with good academics.

Per your Profile and GMAT score I would recommend you to target ISB, Kellogg, Kelley, Tepper, Duke and Purdue etc. As the average GMAT Score for these B Schools fall in between 650-790 range.
You are in perfect stage of your career and around 5 years of work experience is what most B Schools look for.

However you would need to cleverly prepare yourself for questions like why you had a low GMAT score, your rationale behind applying for a specific B school, so on and so forth.

The next step for you is to focus more on your application essays & recommendations for these Business Schools.

Hence it would be highly advisable to seek assistance from professional consultants for guidance on preparing a good letters of recommendations and get your essays/scholarship essays evaluated before sending it out along with your application.

Please visit to see more about online Essay Evaluation and to see how General Ed can help you with MBA counseling and Business School Selection Process.

Also if you happen to be based in Bangalore you can attend a MBA workshop by Director of Admissions ISB along with alumnus of various global B-Schools during the dates mentioned in this links

Feel free to post any other query or concern that you might have.

Hi Neha,

Thanks for your reply.

But don't you think Kellogg, ISB, duke n colleges like these would be too high to aim with a score of 660. I have a bigg doubt about that. Isn't the average GMAT score for these colleges above 700?

My opinion is that schools like Duke or Kellogg would be a stretch for you. Always good to aim high, but you should also have some back-up programs where you'll be more competitive, if it's a priority for you to attend this fall.

You are outside the range for both Duke and esp Kellogg. This is not to say you'll be rejected without a careful review, but you'll need to demonstrate something very special in order to be admitted, such as stellar career progress to date, exceptionally crisp articulation of your career goals, or amazing leadership potential.

Your GMAT score, while not impressive, is also not going to be a huge concern, as long as you can articulate these other variables. Unless you feel you can improve that score by 40 or 50 points, I'd focus more on your essays than retaking the test.

Hope this helps,

Hi Rakshit,

Your profile looks interesting as there aren't many applicants from India who offer experience of automotive sector with exposure to customer service, vendor and distribution network and other related fields.

But your GMAT score makes your candidature weak. Also, you haven't mentioned any extra currics.

At this score you can target

Texas Mccombs ( good for operations and supply chain)
USC Marshall
Purdue ( good for operations and supply chain)
Kelley Indiana ( good for operations and supply chain)
Fisher Ohio ( good for operations and supply chain)

If you can take your score to 690 or 700 you can then include ISB, NUS, Oxford Said, Cambridge Judge, CMU Tepper, Cornell and even schools such as Ross ( known for operations) to the list.

Feel free to contact us for any queries.
