Deciding to apply this year or next depends on what schools you are targeting. If you are shooting for a world class program such as Wharton, Insead of Booth, then I would recommend waiting and trying to improve your GMAT score (as your GPA/GMAT score combination is not competitive). However, if you planning for less competitive programs, then your chances might be decent, once again depending on the individual program you are targeting. if you can provide some more details on your background and target schools (as well as how open you are to applying to others) then I can advise you better.

Well, I would say that since A) Your GMAT is not as high as it could be B) you have not all that much work experience C) we are pretty late in the year, it makes good sense for you to apply next year anyways, no matter what your goals are. This will give you the opportunity of course to retake the GMAT at least one time more (or more if you need, which hopefully, you will not) and prepare applications for round one next year.

Hey,

Thanks for the inputs guys...

I am planing to apply to a few canadian colleges..
what are my chances of getting into Sauder, univ of toronto, Univ of alberta and haskeyne?

If i dont manage to get through on this profile & score...i will take the gmat again with more intense prep, and apply next year when i have more time
Do you think this is a good idea? or shud i just study more n take it again in a few months?

thank you

I'm tempted to say: be patient. You might certainly get into Sauder, and if that fits your goals, actually why not? But with a higher score and better profile, you might get into much better programs, so isn't it worthwhile to take the shot? Or do you just want to get started already???

Hi,

If you are targeting Canadian b-schools for 2013 intake, then McGill, Richard-Ivey, Queens and Toronto are few good options. The GMAT range of these schools fall between 560-720, so you have fair chances of being accepted. You can also try your chances by clicking http://www.general-ed.com/chances-of-bschool

The admission in b-schools depends lot on how you frame your application essays & then for final interviews. So, focus on your essays & interviews. These will cover your avg. profile as well.

Let me know in case of further queries.

Cheers!!

Giving KUDOS is a decent way of saying thanks…
