Hi,
Can you please comment on my profile & any suggestions regarding schools.

Exp: 5+ years as a techie in USA
Education: MS comp sc. (3.25)
GMAT : below 600 (current) retaking GMAT before sending out applications R2/3 deadlines.

I know that my score is pretty low for all the listed schools. But if I manage to increase it by 100 points , would I have a decent chance at these schools.
Target schools:
Nanyang Singapore
NUS Singapore
HKUST Hong Kong
INSEAD Singapore
IMD

Thanks

Hi Bournej,

Thanks for posting. Regarding your application, I strongly recommend you focus your time on your GMAT (ideally aim for a 700+). Your GMAT score is self-reported on your application, so admissions teams will be focusing on your highest score. Some of the schools you listed (INSEAD, etc.) have high average scores.

I also recommend you avoid applying to the last round, as admissions tends to be more difficult for the last round. If you are not accepted, applying to the last round also makes it more difficult to improve your application for the following year.


Best,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
