I recently took GMAT and scored a low 620(Q-58%ile and Verbal65%ile).
I am a 29yrs old, Indian female with background in Biological Sciences Research. I have a Masters degree in Biotechnology from a US university (3.5 GPA) and also almost 5 years of work experience with biotech/pharma start-ups in Silicon Valley.
My dream school is Haas. But with my low GMAT score, that looks like an improbable scenario now.
However, I am wondering if the Masters degree and background in biotech will differentiate me in any way and should I still apply to Haas with GMAT 620? Please suggest
I live in Bay Area and am planning to apply to MBA schools in Bay Area (California) only.
