Profile Eval. for an ambitious person with a sub-par GMAT [#permalink] New post 24 Aug 2012, 12:35
Hi a little bit about me (background info):

- 29 Years old Male
- Graduated from UT Austin Business School with a GPA of 3.68
- Work in Strategy/Financial consulting at PWC in NY for 7 Yrs
- GMAT - Taken multiple times, started with 550--took it 4 times and up to a 670 most recently (persistence!)
- I have the CPA and CFA
- Good Volunteer work (both in US and Pakistan) with WHO and UN.
- Originally from Pakistan

I am targeting a top 10-12 school in north east to do asset management. I know my GMAT score isn't spectacular, but do I have a chance? Also, which schools in particular-- would love goto Tuck/NYU/Columbia/Yale.

Or is my best option to retake the GMAT, I can potentially get a 700-710 but probably not more given my practice tests...

Please advise! Thanks!

Hi ek2283,

Thanks for posting, and congratulations on improving your GMAT score thus far. If you are aiming for a top 10 MBA program, I do recommend you look to take the GMAT again. The reason is that your highest score is self-reported on your application, so admissions teams will be focused on your best score. There isn't a downside to taking the test again, and top programs do like to see a score above a 700.

If you decide to take the test again, here are some free GMAT tips: http://www.stacyblackman.com/gmat-overview/

Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
