Given the schools you are aiming for and your demographic, if you think you can raise your score I would advise you to retake the GMAT. You have time. I don't recommend a[url]=http://blog.accepted.com/2013/01/13/should-you-apply-to-b-school-round-3-or-next-year/ R3 application[/url] so as I said you have time.

You may also want to consider UCLA Anderson and USC.

Best,
Linda

Hi Linda,

I highly appreciate your quick revert. Regarding GMAT, I gave GMAT last year and was thinking of retaking it but didn't. Now, to be honest, i am really not sure if i can commit time for the GMAT in next 6 months. I would like utilize that energy on my other aspects of application.

So, i will appreciate your brutal response on whether this GMAT score can be a breaking game for me or can make Kellogg a really long shot?

Thanks a lot for taking time out for this.

Regards,
Jatin Kathuria

Jatin

You're most welcome. Thanks for the kudo.

Kellogg admits some candidates with a 700. However, I doubt if they are Indian engineers with fairly typical profiles. The competition among people like you is fierce. Again, I recommend a retake. I do feel it is seriously lowering your chances at a program like Kellogg. On the other hand, a higher GMAT doesn't ensure your acceptance at Kellogg.

Sorry,

Linda
