Low GMAT [#permalink] New post 13 May 2008, 18:21

Okay. It seems everyone has extremely high gmat scores in here. Unfortunately, I am no GMAT fan. Ive done it twice and my highest score was 440. Maybe I needed to prepare more but I doubt I would get a 700.

I'm on average a good student. My cummulative GPA was a 0.01 short from honors. I have four years experience working with an international organization. I'm well travelled and I have good recommendation letters.

My question is, is it possible for me to get accepted with my poor GMAT scores? Am I likely to be given conditional acceptance or my application will be thrown away all together?

I seriously have no energy of retaking the GMAT and time isnt on my side.

ps. Im not looking into any of the business schools ranked in financial times, the economist or USNEws but the least I can give myself is an AACSB accreditation. Does any one know any schools which might likely give me a shot? Or the more important question is, do I really have a shot?

Thanks guys, in advance.

I forgot, I was also a club starter and leader while in college

My friend is going to apply to Florida International University and to a school of same caliber in California. Their requirement for GMAT is 550. IMHO, it's not a big score and it's quite achievable. Are you a native speaker?

First thing is first, with your stats I'm sure you can get into an AACSB-accredited school somewhere.

However, I'd first find out if you could improve your score at all. I know you're sick of taking the GMAT, but have you gone through this forum? There is a bunch of helpful stuff here. If you could even improve your score to a 500, I think your chances would improve greatly.

I am no expert but how about looking at a couple of schools in Australia. I think Australian school don't lean on the GMAT as much as schools from other regions do

Macquarie? There`s one decent school in Australia which doesn`t need GMAT at all. A guy from work went there because he didn`t want to take the GMAT.

Looks like you should dig into the schools in Australia. Some of them are pretty decent.
