NEED HELP --> Seeking your opinion? [#permalink] New post 14 Jul 2008, 04:36
I am scheduled to take my GMAT on the 22nd of Aug. I realized this morning that one of the schools(IIM-A-PGPX) I am looking to apply has a GMAT score deadline in the 2nd week of August. I should have done a better job keeping up with these dates. Now I have decided to reschedule my test a few days before Aug 11. But the problem is none of the test centres seem to have a slot available for the month of Aug. Some of the available slots are in late July(in 15 days).

I took a GMATPREP this morning to see if I'm ready if I were to take it in 15 days. I scored a 700. I know I can push this by 20-30 points if I study for a month and take my exam as scheduled (22 Aug). This score will certainly boost my chances when I apply to other schools in UK and Europe later in the year.

I am trying to get some opinions to understand if my goal is even realistic.

Why reschedule if IIM-A-PGPX does not look at candidates who have less than 5-6 years of work experience?

Does someone with my profile stand a chance to make it into IIM-A-PGPX ? Any experience or opinions appreciated

GMAT Score...Let me assume I were to score between 670-700

What do you think friends? Help me solve this puzzle.....I need to make a decision soon.

I have a similar question regarding TOEFL scores. ETS claims they get mailed to schools about 15 business days after the test is taken: do applicants need their scores be in the school's mailbox before the round deadline (i.e. do I need to take the test one full month before the deadline)?

I've taken the TOEFL three times in the past and this would be my fourth, I'm not overly concerned about getting the required score as I am in fitting the test date in my schedule.

Thanks to anyone who answers.
