Hello,

I need help in selecting some good MBA colleges in Europe. I've done Mechanical Engineering and my GPA is 2.7.

I've given GMAT 2 times and my highest score is 540 (V17, Q49, AWA 5) and as of today, I have 6 years of work experience in one of the leading power generation company in Asia. Though, I'm preparing for GMAT for the last time and will take it in July. i'm worried if I couldn't make my score better, in that case which colleges I should select.

I do have good extra-curricular activities record since college. I've also written many articles for newspapers and magazines.

I know nothing is in my favor i.e. not good GPA, neither GMAT score but I still want to go for MBA next year.

Please help me sort out few colleges which I should select before taking the exam.

I will be highly thankful to you guys.

Best wishes.

My suggestion to you: Retake the GMAT again. With your score and GPA you won't be able to get into any decent MBA school, and to pay so much money for a diploma that might not get you a job afterwards (as is the case with the less good schools) is often just not worth it. I am sure you can do higher on the GMAT, and I would say beating a 600 is a necessity, and if you can break the 650, even better!

Resist the temptation to rush things!
