Thanks Linda for the review.

Just want to add, that I attended the MBA Tour Fair in India and there I met representatives from UCLA,CUHK,ROSS and they said the GMAT score is a bit low.
So After discussing with them, I thought of re-taking the exam to increase my chances.

And now after your review, I am again confused that whether I should apply or should re-take the exam.

Also, I am thinking of Rice University as well.

Please suggest.


Thanks

Could you double check the score you provided? You wrote that it's a 740 overall , but a 47 on Quant and a 31 on Verbal. Are those numbers all correct?

That makes more sense now. IN that case I agree with the advice you received at the MBA Tour. You are overreaching. You either need to change your target programs (Look into Babson) or raise your GMAT.

Best,
Linda
