How important is company representation [#permalink] New post 29 Jan 2005, 18:09
Dear all,

I was wondering how important is company representation? I currently have been working 2 years out of undergrad. I know it is little for part time MBA school. I scored pretty low on my GMAT (even after taking it twice) When I say lows I mean mid 500's, but luckily have a 3.4 GPA from UCLA undergrad. I am currently working at Boeing. Had about 7 months experience in retail management, before landing an offer in aerospace. I heard of various employees getting to USC Marshall (part-time program) with 2-3 years. I don't know if it is true, but I hear that the company name does a lot. I think it is all I have going for me since my GMAT score is terrible compared to the school's "average" score. What is your take on my chances of getting accepted? Maybe Boeing has good relations with USC? Now, UCLA Anderson is a different story..... Please provdie feedback!


Thanks!

Have you evaluated your weaknesses on the GMAT? If you can do quite well at one of the best schools in CA it seems that you could probably improve your performance on the GMAT.

I've encountered very few people who are "bad" at taking standardized tests once they were strong on the core constructs and the format of the test. Clearly you were good at taking some types of tests if you were able to graduate with a GPA of 3.4 or so.The only reason I stress this point is that applicants with scores below 600 generally do not fare very well in the applications process (it is still possible to be admitted but it is an uphill struggle).
