Kellogg 1 year MBA is very concentrated and expects a lot of preperation in terms of courses from applicants end. Please check if you satisfy all the pre course work criteria. A majority of the applicants in this course are company sponsored and that is the way Kellogg likes it...Hence the career services are largely ineffective in case you are a career switcher...With such a vast experience...INSEAD, IMD, IESE, Rottedam are more suited to your need...check these out too..

Hi,

thanks for your reply till now,

If i re-take and score 700, will it make difference ? , i mean can i apply in the first round with 700 to some of top 15 US schools or you think i should actually drop my idea for top 15 b-schools considering my age ?

I would appreciate and welcome honestly :) , i believe your frank reply will help me channel my efforts in the right way.

Retake the GMAT and shoot for a 700+ as it'll improve your chances for schools outside the top 16 (Oxford, Cambridge, Emory, UNC, USC, Georgetown, Indiana, Purdue, Tepper, Texas, etc.).

As for the top 16 schools, you'll still be a stretch even with a 700+ score, but at least you will have enough of a shot that it may be worth applying to 1-2 schools like Cornell, Stern, or UCLA.

In short:

Top 16: choose 1-2 as your stretch schools
Outside the top 16: choose 3-4 and treat them as your sweet spot schools.
Outside the top 30: choose 0-1 as your safety schools
