LBS & 550 GMAT advice!! [#permalink] New post 25 Mar 2013, 02:28
Hi all,

Firstly I would like to thank the people from this forum, you can find really good material and advice.

I have one question regarding my application to the LBS already sent.

I have been preparing for the GMAT for 9 months and I take the exam twice. Both times I got 550 :? :? I am not a native speaker and the most difficult part for me is the verbal. I have been working on this part pretty hard but I could not get higher than 25 the day of the exam.

Despite my low score I have continue with my plans and apply for the full-time MBA from the LBS. I think that I have a quite different profile from the rest of the applicants and "story to tell". I have almost 9 years of experience in the biotech industry. I have a PhD and a new company was set up based on my findings (8 mill were raised from private investors). I have been involved in a variety of roles from Research and Development areas to more business development roles such as project licensing and fund raising. I have several publications in books and peer review journals. I have also been granted with several scholarships and graduated with Max Cum Laudem. Moreover, I have been quite active, I have attended two events one organized in Madrid and another in London and met part of the admission committee.

Do you think I have any chance to enter despite my low GMAT score?

Many thanks guys

All the best!

You always have a shot, especially with your unique background. I would keep up the work on the GMAT though, it wouldn't hurt to improve your score...
