Hi,

I took my GMAT in July and scored 690(Q-49, V-34, AWA-5.5). I plan to the apply to the following colleges in round 2. My score has somewhat started to bother me now. Can anyone of you tell me if my score could be an area of concern.

1) Indian School of Business
2) Duke
3) Michigan
4) Tuck
5) NYU Stern

Thanks in advance.

Hi, tingle15!

While your overall score is quite good, the verbal portion might make admissions feel uncomfortable. The AWA score, though, softens the blow somewhat. Hopefully, your essays will help to put them at ease even further.

However, I think that you require better advice than mine. With that in mind, this thread will be moved to a more suitable forum. :wink:

Hi,

The score if fine , the challenge ahead is showcasing a excellent story that helps you get ahead of competition. Your story would be showcased through your essays.

if you could share your career goals then it will be easier to suggest a good set of schools to you.

happy to help with your essays and apps.

drop me a mail at rahul@mbadream.in or mbadream2907@gmail.com

regards
