Is Georgetown a Possibility? [#permalink] New post 23 Jul 2014, 18:51
Hi there,

I sat for my third GMAT in 4 years this morning and walked out with a 640 (Q44, V33). In late 2011, I took my first GMAT and scored a 610 (Q44, V29). In January 2012, I scored a 620 (Q43, V32). Geographically, I am restricted to applying to colleges in the DC area, so I am looking at Georgetown, GWU, GMU, UMD, and American. Personally, I am a huge fan of Georgetown and UMD, so those two are my top schools. I need advice on whether I should attempt the GMAT for a 4th and final time. I am open to taking it one last time, and was fine with this idea before taking my exam today, but would still like advice.

Here are a few things about me:
Graduated in 2012 from GWU with a degree in Environmental Studies (GPA: 3.08)

I entered GWU as an engineering student, and bounced around for 2 years before deciding on Environmental Studies. With the bouncing around, I took a few classes as exploration classes to help choose a major, and did poorly in them. My final 2 years, the bulk of my major, saw much improvement in my GPA, and would be roughly .3-.5 higher than my final GPA.

I work for a Clean Water Association in Membership Development. This is where I fell in love with database work, Information Systems, and Technology, which is what I would like to pursue as my area of concentration for my MBA. In my 20 months at work, I have filled in for my boss while she was on 3 month maternity leave, and have been promoted from Coordinator to Manager.

I would love to have an opportunity to attend Georgetown's McDonough School of Business, but I'm not sure my numbers and story stack up to the rest of the competition. Can anyone provide advice? Additionally, if you need more information, I can provide it.

Thanks!
