Hey -- I think this seems in the right range.... two follow-up questions:

1. What does the rest of your academic track record look like / do you need to get a higher GMAT score to address any academic gaps?
2. Do you have a good personal story about why you're focused on Supply Chain?

Good luck!

-Brian

Thanks for the reply Brian,

Answers to your questions:
1: There are no academic gaps in my profile.
2006: Completed my Engineering from India,
2009: Completed my MS from OSU, USA
2013: Presently, working in a Supply Chain industry.
2: Yes, I do have a personal story about why Supply Chain.
Visited many industries in childhood. Worked with father in his shop where I learnt about supply and demand. Completed my Engineering in the field of Production Engineering in which I presented papers on Supply Chain Management. Completed my MS in Industrial Engineering with Specialization in Supply Chain Management from OSU with 3.8 GPA. Now want to pursue MBA because I think I have gathered technical knowledge and relevant experience in this field and this is the right time to hone my management skills.

I am also planning to apply in early round to increase my chances of getting in.
Just a small question, if these schools expect high GMAT score, would they issue conditional admit where I will have to retake an exam and score better then only they will finalize my admission? I just don't want to retake exam right now.

Regards,
Vishal

I find it highly unlikely that anyone will give you a conditional admit (especially applying in early rounds.) In regards to retaking the exam, how are you doing on practice exams -- do you feel like you've reached a new scoring level? I wouldn't retake until you think you've consistently raised your score by at least 40-50 points.

Thoughts?

-Brian
