Indian IT Male ,4 years work-ex, GMAT-670 [#permalink] New post 17 Sep 2013, 17:31
Hi,

My Profile :

Ethnicity:Indian- Male
Work Industry : Oracle (IT)
Wore Ex : 4 years
Age : 25
GMAT - 670

Target Schools - National University of Singapore, Nanyang

I am in a dilemma as to whether I should retake GMAT or not. In the last 3 mock tests I scored 700,690,710, but ended up getting way below my expectations on the actual exam. I wanted to apply to ISB, Tepper,Anderson;now, I know those are far from my reach. I have cut down the schools to be applied to the above two. Please let me know whether I stand a chance in these two b-schools in Round I.

You have a decent profile. However, for the schools that you are aiming for, a 700+ score will be a must with your profile.

Hi to the original poster! ;)

Thanks for posting. So with your 670 GMAT, I wouldn't say you are 'out of the running' per se at schools like Tepper, just based on that (GMAT range 620-750 for middle 80%, fyi).... BUT bumping up that score would definitely help, and given that your profile at this point sounds pretty similar to so many Indian IT applicants, then yes it would become more important. Additionally if this was your first time taking it, it's not a bad idea to try again; schools take the highest score and taking it twice or more is not uncommon. And if you were scoring better on your practice tests, that shows me that you are likely able to score higher.

I will also point out that JUST getting a higher GMAT score won't be all you need to do; MBA admission is based on a holistic view of YOU as an applicant, and once you have the quantitative factors down (grades, GMAT, etc), the focus is then on the more personal factors... who ARE you? What key experiences have you had in the past? What will you bring to the program that others will not? Why do you need the MBA? How do you envision your career? And so on. You'll need to work extra hard to show how you are different from other IT applicants.

Hope that is helpful, let us know if you have additional questions. Good luck!

Thanks a lot for your reply! I plan to apply for NUS and Nanyang and at the same time prepare for another attempt within 2 months. Will this idea workout?

Not sure entirely by what you are asking about whether 'this idea will workout'?? But in terms of managing 2 applications and prepping for a GMAT re-take, if that is what you meant, it is challenging but possible, depends a lot on your personal situation and available time?! ;) Good luck and keep us posted!
