Hello everyone, first time posting here. I've got some questions following my gmat test. So here are some details:

1) Basic demographic info: M, 27, Canadian. Bilingual (English/French)

2) Educational Background: Undergraduate in Material Engineering (2,8 GPA, but 3,3 over the last 2 years), Master of Applied Science in Metallurgical Engineering (3.5 GPA, but I'm not sure if it's relevant). GMAT score of 640 (33V, 44Q).

3) Work experience: Worked for 2 years as a process development research engineer for an aerospace startup. Since the end of 2010, i'm now working as a research engineer for a Global 500 company. Mostly responsible of technical service with clients and development of new products.

4) Extracurriculars: None.

5) Short/Long term goals: I have no geographic preferences. On the short term, I have a strong interest for Product Management/Market Analysis/Business Innovation.

6) Schools: I'm looking at canadian MBAs. UBC Sauder (full time) would be my first choice, as it focus on my interests. My second choice would be McGill Part-time and then Concordia Part-time.

Given my low undergraduate GPA, should i retake the gmat? Does my master degree have any influence at all? Also, I couldn't find any data on the average GMAT for McGill part-time. Given that the average for full time is 670, i guess it should be somewhat lower for part-time...?

Hopefully someone will be able to enlighten me.
Thanks a lot for taking the time to read my post!

Hello,

Given your choice of programs I think your GMAT score is competitive enough ( i am assuming that you do not want to apply to any other program than mentioned above ). If you think that you can re-take your GMAT and can increase a few points, you may give it a try (a few more points may also help you to get decent scholarship as well)

At UBC, the average score is 650, so you fit in the bill, for rest of the part time programs also your GMAT will not be a constraint for you.

GPA of your undergrad and masters - both - will be taken into consideration for inferring your academic excellence, but you can defend your ( a bit low, not tooo low ) GMAT score.

Overall, if you have only these three programs in your mind, i would suggest to give more time on essays and craft a compelling story (especially your leadership, because with limited information i am unable to find if any strong leadership at work is displayed, because you have already mentioned no ECs)

Good Luck
