MBA profile evaluation (7yrs ,Indian, Oil&Gas) [#permalink] New post 23 Aug 2013, 06:41
Hi Team,

I am 28yrs old, Indian male. Mechanical engineering from IIT. GPA: 7/10

In a bit of confusion. I had a GMAT score of 710 ( q:50 v:36) . Took this test in 2010. I appeared for it again 2 days back and stupidly scored 660 (foolishness).

Working in one of the largest global Oil&Gas service company since 7 years on international/expat assignment. Worked in Asia, Middle East, US, Africa and UK till now. Enough leadership and international experience in every location.

The only schools I was targeting were Harvard , MIT and INSEAD, however with this screw up with GMAT, I am bit disappointed.

I have quick questions: Will they consider ONLY the higher score (710). Even in that the verbal % is in 50s , is it realistic to get into Harvard/MIT with strong apps ?


Thanks for your inputs.

I guess you can certainly put up a goo show on the essay front if you can talk about your international exp, leadership skills and stuffs..GMAT is just one of the criteria..just have a look at the average gmat scores of your target b-schools and go ahead with applications if you meet the criteria.. I feel your score is just about the average scores for the mentioned schools..if m not wrong only stanford has the highest averge gmat score of 720 plus..good luck!!! and yes they will consider your highest score for sure!!
