Got 620 in actual GMAT today-awful [#permalink] New post 20 Apr 2007, 11:50
Hello guys!

Just got back from the test center and got horrible 620 (Q48, V27). This was my first attempt after 2 months of study. I never did this bad in verbal before. I used to score between 38-42 in verbal on all practice tests. But in actual test, I lost the focus by the time I got to verbal. I wasn't able to concentrate at all.

Anyways, that is what I got. I don't want retake the GMAT.

Can someone advise on the admission prospects with score? I am a part-time MBA candidate. Originally, I was aiming for Kelly/Kellogg/University of MI, Ann Arbor.

I guess all of these are out of question now. I just wanted to know if at such a low verbal, it there a possibility of getting an admission anywhere?

thanks!

He mentioned Kelley (btw, this is the correct typing), so I'm sure he is aware.

Now, on the original question: forget the breakdowns. Look at schools with an average score upto 640 and those are your reasonable schools. Schools with average scores between 650 and 670 would be reach schools and the rest would be long shots (you may sneak in but the odds won't be in your favor).

I heard that PT programs usually have lower avg. GMATs than FT. But the rest of the package is there (Work experience, leadership, etc.).

Hope it helps. L.

Honestly, I would recommend that you take it again. Unless you are on the older end (>30) of the spectrum, there is no harm done is delaying the MBA by a year to do it in an outstanding institute. Also, I feel that if you were constantly scoring 35+ in verbal in all your practice tests, the 27 is an anomoly. Since verbal is the last section on the GMAT, you could have an energy drink in the second 10 min break. I would also suggest that you don't have one during the first break. Just some water and fruits should do.
