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 !!
I know many folks who are otherwise smart, but are not good test takers. If you fall within category, don't punish yourself. Apply to "good" schools that will take towards your future career. You still have a decent chance of getting into "good" (top 50 US schools and Top 10 schools within Europe). If you can zoom in on your post-MBA career goals, I might be able to recommend some major specific US schools to ya. In the UK you should be competitive for MBS (Manchester), Warwick. Within Canada McGill and U of T (u of T might be a little bit of a stretch ). In Europe you should be competitive for RSM - among top schools.
