Please evaluate my chances for NYU, UT-Austin, Emory, UCLA, UC-Berkeley, London Business School. I plan to apply this fall.
I took the GMAT once a few months ago but am deciding whether to take it again given my low quant score. I work as an account manager at a leading advertising agency and have developed award winning global campaigns for major brands (Xbox, Kraft, Levi's) over the past 3.5 years. I plan to pursue an MBA with a focus on marketing and strategy which will help me transition to a brand marketing role after B-school. My GPA was 3.34 at the University of Wisconsin- Madison where I majored in Psych and took a variety of courses including statistics and marketing courses in our business school. Please let me know what my chances are given my current GMAT score and if you would recommend re-taking the test (given I haven't studied in over 6 months).
Thank you very much!
If you want to have a serous chance at all your programs, especially NYU, UCLA, Haas, and LBS, you need to raise that quant score. I recommend a retake.
