Low GMAT (610) w/Perfect AWA (6.0) [#permalink] New post 15 Mar 2012, 16:45
This post was
My stats are as follows:

Undergrad: BS Mechanical Engineering
GPA: 2.93
Work Experience: 5 years, mechanical and manufacturing engineering, at a globally-known corporation
GMAT: 610 (67%) - 34V (69%), 40Q (55%)
AWA: 6.0 (91%)
MBA of Interest: Marketing
Schools of Interest: mostly B-rank... BU, BC, Howard, Rutgers, Northeastern... maybe I'll add a "reach" school....

I'm not that unhappy with my GMAT score, given that my first assessment exam before studying was a 480 and I didn't think I'd get above a 550. I'm surprised my Quant. was so low; in fact, I'd rather have it the other way around! At first I was happy to get a perfect AWA score, but then I saw many boards and articles online saying that nobody cares about the AWA. :( I really don't want to take it again and feel that I not only can write a killer application essay (or two, or three...) but maybe my work experience in such a demanding industry and field could speak for me, too.

Do I stand a chance getting in anywhere?

It looks like you might have a good shot - GMAT score in 600 range, complemented by 6.0 on the writing - good job. The GMAT score is great to counter your lower GPA - engineering major so it's understandable. If you want to go for some "reach" schools it may be a little bit harder - you might want to get your score a little bit higher to have a chance.
