Hi All, I applied in R4 and received an interview invite. My GMAT score is 620 and GPA is 3.2. I'm pleasantly surprised that I'm even at this stage. I did have strong recommendations and spent a lot of time on my essays. I'm also a female and a minority.
Knowing that my GMAT score isn't enough to satisfy the Quant req., should I take a math class? I would re-do the GMAT if I'm asked to but I'm not good at standardized tests. I also think 620 is not representative of my abilities.
Should I ask the interviewer what my options are for strengthening my application? Or should I email admissions?
My manager (of 9 mths) is willing to write a third recommendation and so is a HAAS MBA alum in my team. My two recommenders are ppl I have reported to in the past and had known me for an extended period of time (unlike my new manager).Posted from my mobile device
Honestly, your best bet is to retake the GMAT and get a 700. You can try to do a lot of things to make up for the low GMAT score, but the most effective thing to do is to retake the GMAT and get a better score.
