MSc Management LSE - 1st round - urgent advice [#permalink] New post 29 Nov 2010, 01:59
Hello everybody!
I am an undergraduate student and I live in Italy. I just discovered the GMAT Club website and I wish I had discovered it before. I gave the forum a quick look and I was surprised by how useful it is. I just took my 1st GMAT with a disappointing 580 (Q44 V27 AWA5) and now I look forward to improve a lot since I am aiming at Top BS so for at least 680+.
That's a long way to go but I am determinated; I hope to learn a lot from you guys and that my experience could be useful also to others! :D
It seems I first need to improve my Verbal skills.. what are your suggestions? And in what time, in your opinion, I could achieve my target-score?

I wish to first apply to LSE.
Do you advice to apply with this score now (end of november) or to wait 1-2 months after I have retook the GMAT? I know that after december the chances will fall, is it true?
I believe that my application would be strong since I expect to graduate with maximum grade (my GPA is 3.9), I speak 4 languages, I have two very valid work experiences, I lived and studied abroad 1y+, I am very internationally oriented, and I have many relevant experieces and i am only 19yo. Therefore, my GMAT score would be the only weak point...

I would strongly advise trying to improve the GMAT before applying. When you weigh the delayed application with the GMAT, you are better off waiting, because a 580 will hurt you applying to that kind of program. It would be best if you can break 700, but either way you should wait because a 580 could be a red flag.

good luck! Look at the Manhattan GMAT books
