First, have to say you did right retaking GMAT. Now, it seems to me that TUCK might be a reach for you, but it won't be an easy one. You'll have to have very impressive essays and you should find something that will put you apart from your peers. When it comes to Urbana Champaign and the other ones similar to it, I think you are competitive there and have good chances to get it. Their average GMAT is below 700, so you have an advantage there. So my advice is start working on essays.

thanks arammug. Well I had read your response earlier and have already started working on the essays. But I suddenly thought I need to get back to you on this. I have been reading a lot of profiles and their evaluations on the forum, and I was just wondering how can one call a school safe or a stretch. Is it just the stats or is it just that a well rounded profile with good stats would be a good fit for any school. To be more specific, what mattered to you the most when you said "Now, it seems to me that TUCK might be a reach for you, but it won't be an easy one." Just out of inquisitiveness...

thanks again,
simplygood.
