Any suggestions will be really helpful.

Hi champ3220,

Your score split is skewed in favor of quant. And it is also a fact that many B-schools prefer an equal split above 80 percentile in each section. But it also depends on the average score of the college you are applying to. For the list you have mentioned, I guess your score is better than their average scores. So as long a that is true, you need not worry about the split. Just go ahead and apply.

Hi Vaibhav,

School selection depends on a lot of factors beyond just GMAT score.
1. Location: Where do you ultimately prefer to work?
2. Career goals: Which industry or role would you prefer post MBA? Does that school have majority of placements in that industry? Or does that school provide good resources to help you achieve that goal?
3. Budget
4. Competence: Based on objective criteria like GMAT, undergrad score, no of years of experience and subject criteria like past experience, personal and professional achievements, etc.
..etc

So it won't be a direct result of some analysis, rather a very subjective discussion.

Hi Vaibhav,

I know about Simon (Rochester) - they typically weight more the quantitative side, so that might be a plus to you. Also, their application deadline is Jan 15, so it still gives you some time for the 2013 season. The 680 score seems like just above their average, but I agree with Edvento, you would need to show other stats too to give us a better sense about a good match and scholarship chances.

Good luck!
