Hello,

Have taken GMAT thrice but ended up with 630 for last one and 620 for the previous.

Background Info about me:

GMAT (630) - Q49, V27
TOEFEL - Yet to be taken
Nationality: Indian
Total Work Ex - 6 years
International Ex - 4 + years (In United States)
GRAD GPA - 3.3/4.0
Industry - IT
Awards from the Employer

Education:
Grad: BE (University 9th rank)

Extra Curricular Activities:
- Fund Raising Volunteer for India based NGO and Running for a cause in US for last 4 years
- Volunteer for an Adult Literacy Programme in US
- Involved in Technical Symposium/Paper Presentation Winner during Bachelor's Degree
- Organized Cultural events and Technical events during Grad.
- Involved in Cultural events in US - Dancing for Indian Festival

Initially my target was 700+ for GMAT and to hit on top-ranked schools. But with the present low score, I am kinda taking a step back and looking for optimistic target schools.

I am fine for US/UK/Europe and kinda OK for 1 year or 2 year, since I knew I have to compromise on certain criteria because of the low score

Please let me know what would be the target schools I can think of with the above profile. Any help is highly appreciated !!

If you're looking to work in the US post-MBA, focus on Purdue, Kelley, Emory, Georgetown.

If you're looking to work in Europe, look at Oxford, Cambridge and the Spanish schools (IE, IESE, ESADE).

Thanks a lot for the quick response Alex. Do i need to re-attempt GMAT for 4th time ( which may not be a viable option) or can we work on the application process for my profile. Just wanted to know if its covincing.

If you're confident that you can bump it up by 30-40+ points, then re-take it -- otherwise, don't bother with the retake and focus on your written applications.
