I need your help! Please help evaluate my profile. I just took my GMAT today and received a 590 score, I'm frankly a little disappointed. I was hoping to get high enough score to apply to UCLA FEMBA, USC PM or any top 20 school, but unfortunately my score only allows for USC PM.

Thank you in advance for taking a look at my profile, if you have suggestions of other top tier schools that you think I would have a shot with or you have heard of admission success stories with low GPA please share. Any words of encouragement is greatly appreciated at this point.

3 of those 10 years I owned a Import/export recycling company part-time.

I have 2 internet start ups in development this year. Projected launch date for both is summer of 2011.

I will definitely have a great letter or reference from the current President of my company, current clients and also a reference for a Physician at my previous company.

The fully-employed/part-time programs do tend to be more flexible about the GMAT score, so I do encourage you to apply to your top choices anyway with your current score and essays that detail great stories of leadership and impact. I also encourage you to retake the test with a bit more studying/preparation. If that does not generate the score you are hoping for, I recommend considering UC Irvine's fully employed program (GMAT average of 616) and Pepperdine's fully employed program (GMAT average of 534 according to BusinessWeek).
