Hi Andrey,

Admissions teams may be concerned with your AWA score. If you have an english-speaking position at work or can address this in your application then there are ways to mitigate this. However, if you do decide to take the GMAT again remember that your GMAT score is self-reported on your application, so admissions teams will focus on your highest score.

Regarding which schools to apply to, you should strongly consider what your goals are post-graduation and what your location preferences are. It is difficult to recommend a program with the limited information you had written.


Cheers,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
