GMAT score and Schools in Europe [#permalink] New post 12 Oct 2013, 11:24
Hi Everyone,

I want to apply to a MSc in Europe, but couldn't find much information about it so far.
This is a short profile:

- Brazilian, Male, 22 years old (soon 23)
- Graduated on top 15 universities in Brazil (Business Management)
- GPA 3.1/3.2 (81/100)
- 1,5 years of internship in the biggest private company in brazil
- 0,5 year of internship in a startup acelarated by one of the most well know Business Aceletators in Brazil.
- Speak English, Spanish and Portuguese (two expiriences abroad to improve the languages)
- TOEFL IBt: Will take it in a week (From 95-105)

***However, GMAT: 540 38Q/ 26V

I know that MSc are not as hard to get in as MBA programs. But I should have a score higher than 600. What should I do? My profile is interesting, but GMAT is holding me back.

** Note: My GMAT score range is very broad on Gmat Mocks: Quant 38 - 46 / Verbal 26 - 34

Top of mind universities:

*** Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University
*** Warwick Business School
** Hult International Business School
** City University: Cass
* Imperial College Business School
* Manchester Business School

Alternative choices (Don't require GMAT for MSc Programs):

*** Grenoble Ecole De Management (France)
*** Copenhagem Business School (Denmark)
**University of Edinburgh (UK)
** Bradford University (UK)
* University of Bath (UK)
* Durham Business School (UK)

Hi Leo!

I have contacted Rotterdam for myself and they said that GMAT score muts be 600 or higher. However, during a GMAT course I took here in Holland, there was a classmate that had been told by the admission board that he could be admitted with a bit lower grade (I don't remember which grade it was, 550 or so) because he had a really interesting profile with more than 8 years of work experience. You don't have so much experience, but perhaps it would be worth it to try, since your GPA looks good.

Hi Alicia,

thanks for replying!

I contacted them as well and as it seems, the score must be higher than 600 (And to be very competitive, I think it should be more than 630). They can only make exceptions in very special cases. Since I'm far away from having 8 years of work experience, I probably won't be a special case. I will retake GMAT in a month from now and hopefully will reach the 600+ zone.

Are you applying for a MSc in Rotterdam as well?

Good luck =)

Update! My TOEFL score was 102 with all sections 24+.

I intent to retake the GMAT on Dec 7.
Should I start to write my motivation letters and etc. or simply focus on studying for the GMAT exam?
As I said in a previous post, some of the universities I'm applying to do not require GMAT.
