Thank you for using the timer!

There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Haifa University wants the following criteria: 3.0 GPA 500 GMAT 3+ Yrs work experience 2 Letters of Rec. Good understanding of English (program is taught entirely in english)
I did my undergrad in the US and lived most of my life in the US so I'd be a minority in the program. My first year of undergrad i had a 3.27 GPA at Long Island University My last 4 years of school I studied at Univeristy at Albany and had a 2.7 GPA (due to working part time and studying part time, and due to the fact I was an immature kid) My GMAT is low 530 (33 Q, 31 V, AWA 6.0) Was getting around 550-600 on practice exams I have 4 1/2+ years work experience (2 at a financial firm, the other 2 1/2+ at a startup ecommerce company, where I went from sales, to purchasing manager, to eventually general manager in a very short time) I managed 9 people before I left the company. My 2 letters of rec. are coming from the Founder of the Ecommerce Company (an NYU Stern Graduate) and the other is coming from the Vice President of the Ecommerce company. Both of whom held me at very high regards. I have mother tongue english, speak some russian, and a little bit of hebrew.
Anyone have advice on wether I have an ok shot of getting in? The school is only asking from a 500 on the GMAT which is low, and a 3.0 GPA. Those are my biggest concerns. Should I retake the GMAT and go for the upper 500s which I think I can do with some more study time?
I don't think I want to stay in Israel (unless I get a great job offer from a start-up company like waze!) but I think that beign there will give me some added value because it is the start-up nation. Should I only get an MBA from where I want to live? Because I really want to study abroad for my MBA and want to gain global experience. This Start-uP MBA in Israel from the Technion is taught entirely in English AND is in Tel Aviv. I looked up the Technion and it seems like they have really high rankings but they don't have any information on this program yet because it is so new.
Well, the school is very highly considered in the startup area, but really unless you want to stay in Israel for years (which you may want to do) it doesn't make sense to go there. Salaries are far lower than in the US in general too. But you definitely would stick out as a unique candidate. But like I said, if you are going for personal reasons, then it can be a good idea. Otherwise you probably have better options. _________________
I'm looking for something that will help me advance in the world of startups internationally. Why would I need to work in Israel for a few years? Can't I get my MBA and internship experience and after graduation move back to the states? Is the Technion Degree recognized in the states?
