I recently concluded my GMAT and got a score of 680. Quants = 48 ; Verbal = 34
My extra curricular activities are moderate, nothing exceptional yet nothing too minor.
I (will) have attained a First Class degree from a top 10 Engineering Institution from my country. The GPA is 6.73/10 but the college grading system is tough and a 6.5+ GPA entails a First class degree.
1) While I know my GPA/GMAT are not top grade, what are the chances that I could make it to MiM,HEC Paris on its basis for 2012 intake?
2) If the risk is too high is it advisable for me to retake the GMAT? I have a definite feeling I could improve at verbal.
3) If not the HEC Paris, what are my chances for ESSEC or ESCP, EMLyon and Skema through the SAI?
4) Does it matter a lot whether I apply through Autumn Session(GMAT 700+) or Winter Session(GMAT<700)?
Any insight from anyone would be very highly appreciated.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate :
I am the captain of my soul.
