Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
My main concern is that you would be in the far left tail for both conventional indicators of academic ability (GMAT and nominal GPA). You would need to present some extremely strong standing on the other aspects of your application or give the admissions officers reason to believe that the conventional indicators are no longer representative of your true capabilities.

I am thinking of applying to Haas, Stanford, HBS.
I am an Indian. I completed my undergraduate degree in business from USA. 5 years work experience. GMAT 650, Q39,V39.
Undergraduate GPA: B
Should I even bother and waste money applying to these schools?
I have extracurriculars, leadership etc. But, will they even look beyond my GMAT score and genuinely read my application?
No hard feelings, all thoughts are welcome
Thank You RJ
Given the competitive group that you belong to and the fact that your GMAT score is below average for accepted applicants and your GPA is probably also below average or at best average, I don't think it makes sense for you to apply to these 3 schools, certainly not to apply exclusively to them. Look into other schoosl that will help you achieve your goals and where you are also competitive.
Based on one of your other posts, it seems that your nominal GPA was higher than I originally believed (a 3.3 is usually a B+ average). I think that you have a good chance at the Trans Elites (UNC and Texas) and perhaps some of the elites.
