I gave the GMAT last week and am considering applying to B-Schools next year. Looking for advice on GMAT retake, chances of an admit in Top B schools and in general.

GMAT - 700 (Q49/V36.AWA-6.0)

GPA - BE, Elec Engg (Top 5%), India
MS, Elec Engg (GPA: 3.8), US University

Goal - MBA in a top school will add brand equity. I am good at what I do but to graduate to the next level (both position and organization) and change status quo, I believe an MBA is the right platform

Extracurricular Activities - Founder/member of professional organizations in College, Organized events, Volunteered at Blind school, Home for the Aged.

Professional - Telecom consultant for 4+ years. Promoted every year. Experience in Functional and Technical roles in multiple areas in Telecom (Engineering, Sales, HR, IT). Mentored junior members.

Target schools - Undecided but have Wharton, Cornell, Stern, Columbia, Kellogg in mind. I am open to retaking the GMAT if it helps my chances.

Hi testeron,

You have a strong GMAT score, although if you believe you can improve your score by 40+ points it may be worth taking a second time. Your score is self-reported on your application, so admissions teams will only focus on your highest score.

Regarding your application, admissions teams are not just looking for candidates with strong numbers- they are looking to cultivate leaders. I recommend you read this case study of an engineer who was accepted into Columbia, Tuck, and MIT: ... ies/case2/
