Hello,
Please evaluate my chances of admission. My profile is as follows

GMAT: 680 (43 Q and 41 V)

I will have 5.3 years work exp as R&D engineer in a US manufacturing company by the time I apply to schools. I have been promoted after just 2 yrs on my job. I also have a Master degree in mechanical engineering with a GPA of 3.9/4 with a heavy math focus and have excellent grades in all the math course I have taken. I also have publications under my name

My undergrad is from India and my GPA is little above 7/10. Math grades in my undergrad are average only. I also have below avg extra curricular activity.

So based on the above profile these are my questions

1. Will my Master degree grades be given prominence by schools or will the emphasis be on undergrad performance?

2. What are my chances in schools like Insead singapore and NUS singapore?

3. Would you suggest I re-take my GMAT.

Your response will be greatly appreciated

Thank you

I think your profile sounds good but it all depends on the requiremenst of the school you want to go to.

Was your undergrad in Mechanical Engineer too? The prominence would given to the story in your essays, how the Engineering eduction has helped you in your career so far and what your post MBA aspirations are.

I haven't looked at numbers from these schools but I would say that your profile is strong.

You mention that you had strong Math grades. Looking at your GMAT quant score it might appear that you could do better if you re-take GMAT. Having said that, I am curious as to what you felt about your GMAT score. What your mock-test scores were? If you feel that you did not give your best shot on the current attempt, I would strongly suggest you to retake GMAT.

All the best
