Hello,

I would be happy to hear advice about what should I do as a next steps.

I'm 22 year old male from Georgia (not US), finished my bachelor degree in finance in June 2012.
GPA 3.1/4.0 I know it looks really bad, but the average GPA in my university was really low. With 3.1 I'm in top 10% of my class.

GMAT: did it week ago. got 700 (50/35).

Work: working since 2011. Did internship in real estate company and retailer company, then worked in both of them for one year as a financial analyst.
Currently working in one of the largest company of my country (oil and gas corporation) as a quality control manager in construction department and evaluating future projects in strategic planning department.

I want to do MBA or even master program preferably in finance or related fields in US and I have several questions:

1. Should I retake GMAT? I have feeling that I can get around 720-740 if practice actively couple of weeks. But is it worth?

2. Which schools and programs would you recommend me to apply to.

3.What can I do currently to make my profile better and make it possible to apply to higher ranked schools.

Thank you in advance.

Hi pxovela2,

Thanks for posting. With the GMAT, if you believe you can improve your score by 30+ points, we do recommend you take the exam again. The reason is on your business school application, your highest score is self-reported on your application, so admissions teams will focus on your highest score. There is no harm in taking the exam again. If you'd like, MBA.com provides 2 free official GMAT practice exams.

We also have free GMAT tips here: http://www.stacyblackman.com/gmat-files/

For which MBA programs to apply to, do you have a preference in location, and what are your goals post-graduation?

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
