Profile evaluation (7yrs of international experience in Oil) [#permalink] New post 23 Aug 2013, 06:39
Hi Team,

I am 28yrs old, Indian male. Mechanical engineering from IIT. GPA: 7/10

In a bit of confusion. I had a GMAT score of 710 ( q:50 v:36) . Took this test in 2010. I appeared for it again 2 days back and stupidly scored 660 (foolishness).

Working in one of the largest Oil&Gas service company since 7 years on international/expat assignment. Worked in Asia, Middle East, US, Africa and UK till now. Enough leadership and international experience in every location.

The only schools I was targeting were Harvard , MIT and INSEAD, however with this screw up with GMAT, I am bit disappointed.

I have quick questions: Will they consider ONLY the higher score (710). Even in that the verbal % is in 50s , is it realistic to get into Harvard/MIT with strong apps ?


Thanks for your inputs.

Thanks for your inputs.


The will evaluate your application using the 710, but they will see both scores. And if you got in the 50 in the verbal, that could be a red flag for these elite programs. INSEAD used to take the highest score on the quant and the highest score on the verbal, so you may be in better shape there.
