GMAT score of 670- Please suggest Universities [#permalink] New post 13 Feb 2011, 11:34
HI,

I have secured a GMAT score of 670 and an AWA of 5. I intend to apply to the following schools for their MBA program beginning in September 2012.

1. Cranfield University
2. Cass Business School
3. NUS
4. Nanyang Tech University
5.Judge School of Business(Cambrigde)
6. Saiid School of Business (Oxford)
7. Indian School of Business

I can only afford to do a one year MBA for certain personal reasons. Please help me understand my chances at the above schools for their 2012 programs, given my score and brief profile provided below.

Below is my brief profile:

Career
I have about 5 years of work experience and will have 6+ years of experience, all in Investment Banking and Finance and with leading major financial services at the time of joining a B School in 2012 around August- September. I have won a couple of awards for performance.

Education
I hold a Bachelors in Commerce, were I topped the university in Accounting. I also hold two NSE market certificates, and am pursuing my CFA. I am also almost complete with my Post Graduation in Securities Market Laws (part TIme). Additionally, i have a Certificate evidencing my proficiency in German Language from Goethe Institut Germany.

Extra Curricular

I am a co-admin for a NGO based out of Mumbai. We focus on social issues- in particular, health and education and certain policy related issues- that affect the city of Mumbai. It is our way to do our bit for the city.

When in college, I have won a Mr.University Personality contest as a testimony of team management and event management skills, Physical Fitness and general awareness. I have been a member of various college cultural and literary committees.

I thank you for your guidance and advice. It will help me immensely to take a step forward in the right direction. Thanks

Ideally, I'd like you to boost your GMAT score. Also, to differentiate yourself from other applicants from the financial sector, you'll need to emphasize the unique insights you've shared and impacts you've had on your firms. Also, if your personal leadership stories do not fit into the essays, have your recommenders discuss them in the letters of recommendation. If you do these things, I do believe you have a good chance at the schools you mentioned.

Thanks Jennifer,

Yes, i do intend to retake the GMT after my Level 2 examinations in June. However, I worry about one fact: the GMAT is a tricky exam and it all waters down to the D-Day. While I know my Verbal scores could have been a lot better, i fear that if for any reason, my score is the same or worse, lower, my application may be received poorly by schools as they will have access to the entire GMAT history. Is this fear justified? Do schools really consider only the highest score?

Irrespective of my re-take, may i request you to advise me if you think this score is good for NUS and Nanyang alone?

Thanks again

Regards
Ramnath

Hi, Ramnath. Yes, I do feel the 670 is safely within the range of acceptable scores for Nanyang and NUS. For other programs, yes, they really do only care about the highest score. If there is a huge drop in score subsequently, they would raise their eyebrows, but that can generally be explained in an optional essay by illness on the day of the test.
