Hi Folks,

I wish to apply to schools like Wharton, Harvard, Kellog, Chicago and Sloan. I'm now at a point where I need some advice on whether to retake my GMAT so as to cross the 700 mark. I'm sure people who apply to these schools have fantastic grades. I am interested in specializing in either strategy or finance. What do you think my chances are at these schools if I do NOT re-attempt the GMAT?

- GMAT score of 680 - 46 Quant and 38 Verbal - 89th Percentile
- 4 years working experience
- MS in Computer Science - GPA of 3.96
- BS in Computing - GPA of 3.8

Addition:

1. 3 years in the military, leading an infantry platoon
2. Currently, I run basketball sessions every week for kids, so as to keep them off the street and to give them an avenue to seek advice for anything, be it education or personal aspects

Zambrotta,

I would say your chances are slim at all four schools with that GMAT score. Many other factors that you didn't mention, such as your work experience and leadership profile, also come into play as well. But to be on the safe side you may want to raise the GMAT score or consider applying to some schools further down the food chain.

Good luck,
