Schools: I am planning to apply only to ISB & INSEAD. It would be great if you could suggest few options I might want to consider. I did not prepare for the GMAT but I am confident of touching 720 with a month's lead time. Will highly appreciate your views on this one.
Hey there, Well with your GMAT and profile I think that ISB and INSEAD are both stretches... so retaking the GMAT is definitely a good idea, but I don't want to speculate until you have your real score.... but I think that if you are serious about doing an MBA, you might also want to consider opening up the possibility to applying to other schools, because even if you were to get a 740, ISB and INSEAD will not necessarily be easy (although for sure more possible than with a 680!).
