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!
