Any help anyone can provide will be very much appreciated. I am trying to determine whether I should retake my GMAT. I am interested in applying to the following schools: HBS, Stanford, Wharton, Tuck, Yale, Cornell, Kellogg, and Booth.
Here are my "stats":
African American Male (31 years old)
GPA: 2.57 from the United States Air Force Academy (c/o 2005) ... Major: Management
GMAT: 670 (Q42, V40) -- I only took this once
Intelligence officer for Air Force Special Operations (Japan, Philippines, Korea, Thailand) – 3 years ... (Received 2 commendation medals for saving people’s lives.)
Program Manager for $26 million ejection seat program – 2 years
Global project manager for oil and gas company managing $55.1 million project that spans across 7 different countries – 1.5 years
Thank you for your time.
Given your target programs, it would be better if you [url]retook the GMAT[/url], especially if you think you can raise it. I can't guarantee your current score will keep you out, but a higher score would certainly help.
