Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Before you decide which schools to apply for, have you considered what your goals are post-graduation? Business school is not an end goal, but rather a channel for you to better reach your goals. You should also consider the location of the program, as you will receive a very different experience if you attend Kelley (Indiana) as opposed to Haas (Northern California).
Regarding your GMAT score, I recommend aiming to score at least a 700 for the programs you are looking for. Remember, MBA.com provides 2 free official GMAT tests, and we provide free GMAT advice here:
Re: Profile Evaluation - College Topper with break in career [#permalink]

Thank you for the feedback. Will my high GPA supplement for my lesser GMAT score? My short term goal will be to get back to the workforce and long term would be to be part of a team that will work on a go to market strategy in selling software services along with business development of cloud & mobile solutions.
My main question is the break in my career of more than 3 yrs. Will that be a disadvantage or can I turn it to my advantage.
Also I see that women are under represented. If a business school have 29% total acceptance, is it fair to assume that it may have a higher, say 35-40% acceptance among women?
With regards to your GMAT, the schools you are considering have significantly higher scorers. A high GPA can help to an extent, but your GMAT percentile would still be very low. Whichever program you are most hoping to attend, I recommend aiming for the school's average score.
Although women do have a better chance of being admitted, unfortunately we cannot pin point the acceptance rate to a specific number.
