Hello there Maggi,
Good to hear from you.
so first of all, you may be rushing things a bit. Right now from what I understand you have about 1.5 years work experience, right? Well, to apply to B-school, you really need at LEAST three years, so I think that first of all, you might want to take another year to gain some more experience. Which is fine because anyhow by the time you retake your GMAT you will be too late to make R1 applications.

Let me know your thoughts,
Best,
JF

Okay then, which schools will you be applying to?

You will need to take either the TOEFL or the IELTS. It pretty much doesn't matter, so that the one that gives you test dates when you want is the one to go with. In the meanwhile good luck on your GMAT!

Well Maggi, with a 640 pretty much all those schools will be out of range. Maybe Olin will be possible, but the others...

Congratulations!! That's much better! Stern will still be tough with that score, but it becomes a POSSIBLE tough, which is much better than with a 640! Probably schools in your range are schools ranked about 20-50. Check their GMAT average. If it's higher than what you have, it will probably be a bit tough (there are many other criteria of course, but it's a good place to start)

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. Does applying in R1 makes a big difference. Tofel dates are not available till oct 29. However ielts is available on oct 10. Most of the schools are having deadlines around oct 15. Is it ok if i take tofel after submitting the application? By suggesting the 20-50 schools you mean 20-50 schools in the world ranking?

Applying R1 makes a small difference, but it's much much better for you to wait and to apply with a perfect application than to rush things. So apply R2. By 20-50, yes I mean in the rankings. Although this is VERY approximate.

Maggi,
Like I wrote it my early post, I don't think you really have enough experience to apply to business school at the moment. I don't want to be the bearer of bad news, but I don't think that if you applied to the schools above now, you would see much positive response. I'd suggest waiting two more years, and if you think you can get STILL higher on your GMAT then consider taking it one more time.

Best,
