I just wrote my gmat today. I was aiming for a 720+ but ended up with a 690 (Quant-49 & Verbal - 35, yet to receive my essay scores).. I have a little over 4 years of experience as a Software Engineer (the last one year as a team lead), have good scores in my BE and excellent references. I intend to apply for the full time courses in LBS, Oxford(Said Business School), Cambridge(Judge Business school), University of Chicago (Booth) and Cornell (Johnson). What are my odds of getting into any of these schools? I don't think i have the time to write the exam once again..
Everyone in this forum will say that there is no difference between 690 and 720, but I feel that is not correct esp. for geographic locations such as India and China. For Indians bar is +10-20 above school average. I know about LBS and Booth only. Someone might be able to comment on other schools. I am sorry I am not wiriting encouraging words, but this is reality. If you have experience that could differentiate from the rest then even 690 would work
