Hi!

Thanks for sharing your profile. Your professional background/leadership experience is very strong. Your biggest weakness is your GMAT (as your undergrad scores are great!) -- is there any way you could retake the GMAT and improve your score? A 620 is fairly low and even for a school like Michigan State, I'm not sure it would be "safe". I'd love to see you get into Chicago, and feel that with a stronger GMAT score, you'd have a good shot. Any chance of a retake??

Best,
Mili

Mili,

Thank you for the response!

I have been thinking about re-taking the GMAT and if I could raise my score by 30 points, this would help immensely.

Do you have any other suggestions for boosting my chances of getting into target schools?

Thank you
