I GOT IN!!! [#permalink] New post 12 Apr 2007, 11:45
Alright so my GMAT was not the best: 660, and 5 on the writing.
I am graduating this year with a BA in finance at the UW with a 3.6 GPA and I was part of the honors program.
But I did a lot of internships, worked as a swim instructor to pay for school. And I speak four languagues (born in France, Russian mother, Spanish (lived in Cuba for a bit), and English of course ;)

And I got in the "Instituto de Empresa" masters in finance program :)
I will probably be the youngest one in the program, but I still made it!
And I am having an interview with another program; HEC in Paris in May.

So your GMAT really does not matter that much in the end :) So don't stress out and just apply everywhere, because if you have a weird background like mine they will like that :)

Oh and I forgot to mention that Instituto de Empresa is ranked #11 globally by the FT for their MBA program. And HEC is ranked #17 globally for their MBA program. (There are no rankings for Masters in Finance globally, but you all already knew that ;)
