Hi Stacy

Thank you for all the information and help you provide to us MBA Hopefuls :). Also, thank you in advance for taking the time to evaluate my profile.

Indian, Male Age-27

GMAT
660 (44 QA, 38 VA) AWA 5.5

Academics
MS (IT), Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information and Communication Technology, Gandhinagar (2.45/4) – 2004 -2006
B.C.A., Gujarat University, Ahmedabad (82.33/100) - 2001 - 2004

Professional Experience
Full Time from Dec, 2005. Will be 6 years in Dec 2011.
Feb 2011 – Present – Vendor Manager @ Autodesk Inc, Singapore
Oct 2007 – Feb 2011 - Senior Software Engineer @ Autodesk Inc, Singapore
Dec 2005 - Oct 2007 - Software QA Engineer @ Neilsoft Ltd, India

Target Schools
INSEAD, ISB, IIM - A, NUS, NTU

I know that I have a weak GMAT score and I was looking at improving that. However, in my current role, I travel very often and that is not helping with the GMAT prep. I think one of the interesting things for me is that despite coming from a technical background, I was selected into vendor management which is a business role.

Please let me know your thoughts on whether my score will be sufficient for the schools that I am targeting or whether I must retake the GMAT.

Cheers!

Hi losaspirantes,

If you feel you can improve your score 40+ points, I recommend taking the GMAT again. The average GMAT score for INSEAD last year was 700, and for ISB it was 710. This may not seem like much of a difference, but you would be applying with a low percentile GMAT score.

The other important note is that the GMAT score is self-reported on your application, so business schools will only focus on your highest score. The only disadvantage to taking the test again is your time to study and the cost of the exam.

Here is a section with free GMAT prep advice: http://www.stacyblackman.com/tag/gmat/

Hope this was of help.

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
