Low GMAT scores - still possible to get accepted? [#permalink] New post 23 Jun 2007, 18:29
Hi-

I'm interested in learning more about acceptance rates for women. I've had a successful career with 7+ years of experience and I am interested in now pursuing a one year MBA.

I've looked into some options, but I'm a little concerned about my GPA and GMAT scores since neither are very high....my GPA in undergrad was around a 3.0 and my GMAT practice scores are anywhere from 550 to 610.

Is it impossible to get into schools given these parameters? I'm looking at the following one year programs: usc, unc at chapel hill, u of illinois, emory, usd, pepperdine and uc davis (part time program).

Thanks

drss88,

With your numbers you can certainly get into USD, Pepperdine, U of I (aim for the 610 here minimum), and UC Davis part-time (full-time is a different story). You may also have a solid shot at UNC and Emory if the rest of your profile is strong: good leadership and impact, solid extracurriculars and community, and -- ideally -- an interesting personal background. A 610 would place you just inside the middle 80% of GMATs for UNC and just outside the middle 80% for Emory. If you are from an ethnic minority this will significantly increase your odds. The lower edge of USC's middle 80% is 640 so the rest of your application would really have to be impressive for a 610 to get you in.

Hope this helps,

The original post is from 4 years ago. I doubt she's still on this forum anymore.

Hi

I have undergraduate degree in pharmaceuticals and experience for about 3 years in the International Business Div. of a Pharmaceutical Company in India. I do have extra-curricular/academic awards to my credit and on a personal level, I am extremely passionate about teaching . I spend my time teaching underprivileged and blind students in my leisure time . MBA has been on my mind since some time and this year, I am considering applying to US-Universities. However, my dilemma lies in my GMAT scores and multiple attempts ; I am not too sure how admissions councils would approach my scores below.

660 - Aug'2010
590 - Nov'2013
630 - Jan'2014.

I am considering a full time MBA program and would appreciate if any of you could advise on B-schools... My lists consists of UNC, Kelley, Boston, Carlson, Smeal, Terry, USD to name a few.. Perhaps , i have been a bit ambitious and would appreciate any suggestions in this regard ..

Thank you kindly.
