Hi everyone!

I scored 650 on GMAT today, Q 49, V 29. I've red from many sources that since I have several years of managerial experience in media industry, top schools would forgive me my low verbal, because the experience is a strong evidence of my verbal skills. What do you think of that?

Thank you very much!

hi

well what you heard is quiet true, gmat score is only a part of your application. Look back into your career and list your achivements, from here on it all depends on how u package ur successes in the essays. Good recommendations will also make you stand out.

I researched schools, those ranked from 10- 15 do admit candidates in the range of 600- 699 gmat score, 50% of students admitted last year at CMU were in this range, but again depends on the schools you want to go to and your background.

So if work on your application package in way that show cases your skills very well and also write fantastic essays i dont see any reason your verbal score will matter.

One last point, always remember that you are competing in a global pool of candidates, so apply to a good number of schools.

Hope this helps

Hi,

Raj makes a number of good points. The GMAT is merely one of many important factors that schools consider when evaluating candidates.

Transelite, elite, and even ultraelite schools admit and enroll students with GMAT scores below 700 and even below 600. However, note that the Carnegie data are for enrolled students only- not admitted students. We do not know what proportion of applicants were in the 600-700 range so it is unclear whether these students are admitted at the same rate as students with higher scores. Regardless, the odds of admission tend to increase with GMAT score across virtually all schools. Often students with low scores are special admit candidates of one type or another- it is dangerous for one to assume that he will qualify as a special admit candidate . . .

Some schools will certainly forgive a relatively low verbal score if there are other indicia of verbal ability. However, for students who are not native or high experience English speakers, a low verbal score might raise concerns about the applicants facility with English.

If you already have a high standing on verbal ability, it would seem logical to take the test again so this high standing can manifest itself on the next administration of the exam.
