Hi All,

Will request your help in deciding if I should retry my GRE or if my profile is strong enough to proceed for the schools I want. It is going to be my second MBA so please keep that in mind.

Here are the details for my candidature

Nationality/Gender: Indian/Male
GRE Score 162 both sections
Work Ex: IT & Operational Compliance
I have over 7 years of work exp in IT Compliance and have worked in US, Europe, S.E.Asia and India. I have always worked in client facing roles and have also managed offshore team. I have worked for both IT and Business Clients across various sectors from banking to telecom to manufacturing to government.

Education: Production Engg and MBA (SCMHRD, Pune). Still have to fetch my GPA but they will be around 3.5

Extra Curr: Was very active in my engineering days but since then it has tapered off. Still do some photography, workout and some social work.

I am looking to apply to institutes in the US East coast only because of personal reasons. What do you'll think is my chance in Yale, Stern, Darden, Sloan and such schools.
As an exception I will consider Insead and IMD Switzerland.

Hoping for some guidance.

Regards,
Abhinav

You should double check to be sure, but the schools you listed I don't believe will allow applicants who already have an MBA degree. This is actually the case with most reputible schools. THey do not want you taking a seat from some other applicant who does not have and MBA. They also would want to know why you have failed to achieve your goals the first time out with the MBA.

Your 162 x2 is equivalent to around a700 on the GMAT, so yes I believe it is "good enough" as you put it to get into a good b-school.
