got whipped by GMAT!!! 590 :(..help [#permalink] New post 23 Dec 2010, 07:46
hey guys...
i just came after giving my GMAT..got awful 590...don't know what happened but i completely blanked out..missed couple of questions in quant and also in verbal..still my quant went pretty well though got my a** kicked in verbal...

i was thinking of applying to some US B-schools in hope that i would get somewhere around 640-700.. but alas..it was not to be true...:( i feel really rejected..

I want some suggestions from you guys...should i re-take my GMAT in another 5 months or so or should i give my application a try in few universities...below is my profile:

GMAT : 590
TOEFL iBT : 108
GPA: 3.5 / 4
WE- by fall 2011 - 2.5 yrs
additional WE - 1 year
Sports - good ( played for the college )
Extra curricular activities - Good

the thing is that i have to complete my MBA anyhow by 2013..and i was thinking of applying to US B-schools where MBA is of 2 years for fall 2011 batch..
now i have got 2 options-
a. apply now to a US B-school ( and get rejected because of GMAT )
b. prepare and apply to B-schools with 1 yr of course

i am seriously in fix.. experts, please advice. and if i have even slightest of chances of getting into a fairly decent B-school (even without financial aid ), pls let me know which schools i can apply to.

Thnx guys!!
P.S. - thanks to all you guys for my 590. i wouldn't have got even that without your help..

krishnasty, I'm sorry to hear about your predicament. Looking at your profile, the other area that might be a problem in addition to a low GMAT is the length of your WE. I'm not sure what your reasons for wanting to complete an MBA by 2013 are, but if by chance you're able to wait another year (get more WE, study for the GMAT - this forum is a fantastic resource), I think that would do a world of good to your application. Additionally, if you happen to be a male from an oversubscribed demographic, you're better off applying early in the process anyway (R1 or R2).

krishnasty, If I were in this situation, I'd give another shot at GMAT and apply for next session. I can sacrifice one year for MBA from top 10 business school and for 25 years of great career. @ariel has already mentioned same thing, and I'm just trying to re-emphasize it.

thnx guys..even i have decided to give GMAT another shot...

i did good in quant....but fell face on with the verbal section...did not attempt 5 questions bcoz time ran out..i think i would practice more on the verbal front and then again give it a shot..and anyways, that would also increase my WE..

thnx guys..you are the best :)
