I am an Indian but with US Citizenship.
So got a 680 on the GMAT. Math and Verbal are equal in percentile. This is the third time i took it. First time i got a 590, second 650 and this time i got a 680. I could take it a fourth time and I know i can bring my score above 700...but I am not sure if it's worth it.

5 years of experience in marketing -> 2 years at Intel managing global marketing programs. Now at a startup, doing product marketing and managing operations in India/US. So I have good experience.
Brought up in Brazil for 13 years, that's the reason, I have an interest in global marketing - international brand management.

I have been involved in extracurricular activites with AIF - American India Foundation and then now I am involved with the Red Cross. However, these are not leadership titles etc.

Undergrad at Cornell University: Electrical Engineering with a 3.2 GPA only.

So i want to go to: Kellogg, Michigan, Duke, UNC, UCLA, USC, Cornell.

Any feedback? Please be constructive.
thanks, Amit

Yeah, I don't think it's worth it for you to take the GMAT again. If you don't get it, I doubt it will be because of your GMAT score.

You have an interesting background as an international, which is great. Be sure to weave that into your overall application story, regarding why you want to do global marketing. Also good that you're not pure tech, but have had a marketing career in tech instead.

As for your extracurriculars, ideally you could point to some leadership roles or specific achievements, rather than merely having been a "participant." Something like this could really help to set you apart.

Those are my initial thoughts. Your odds of getting into at least one of those schools is probably decent.
