Any Help in this regard would be highly appreciated.

Will it be possible to get admission in any of the US schools or UK schools with this score for 2008 batch.

As per the top schools, the mean GMAT score is well above 700. I was wondering, is it still possible that with my 7+ experience, I will be able to get into any of the good schools( In top 50 US/UK ).

And if anyone can please tell me the name of 5-6 schools where my chances of getting admission are atleast there (with only 620 on board).

Is there any reason you aren't going to try to improve your GMAT further? Lots of people raise scores in the 500s-low 600s to the 700 range. The GMAT is one thing you have pretty good control over in the application process since you can't really change your undergrad or past work experience.

In the top 50 your score is going to be at or slightly below the school averages so you stand a much better chance than you will at Harvard but its still not going to be an easy. Now applying to a school in the bottom part of a top 50 with a 700+ you will almost definitely get in and thats also where the money starts coming into play.

First of all Thanks a lot for your reply. I was quite depressed to see my score. Though I scored 720 in both the GMAT prep exams, when I saw my score after the actual exam, it was difficult to digest. Even though I was quite confident even after the exam that I will score somewhere around 720. I scored 47 in quantitative (though I am not sure how good it is) and a meagre 24 in Verbal. Now I really don't know, how will I be able to improve upon my score, if I decide to reattempt GMAT. Any suggestions from this forum will be highly appreciated. Just before the exam, I did attempt all the OG 10 SC's and I could get more than 90% correct.

But I would like to share that, while I sat for the exam, I did encounter a lot of "EXCEPT" questions and "Which one is not" questions. And my general feeling is that the level of actual GMAT exam is much higher then that of the diagnostic test or GMAT prep test.

I have seen lot of people at this forum sharing thoughts. I would like to have your opinion on my situation.

I wanted to apply to the schools because the deadlines for all the schools will be over and I will only get a chance in 2009 then.
