Hello all,

I wrote GMAT exam today got 700(Q50,V34,IR6), although i was expecting 710.

I have 4+ years of experience so it will be around 5 years while applying to ISB.

I work with John Deere India (Leading agricultural equipment manufacturer), hope all Americans know JD very well. Passed out of NIT jaipur in mechanical engineering with 3.3 GPA.

Please evaluate all this and tell me whether 700 is enough so that i can concentrate on Interview part or should i retake the GMAT as 700 with my profile is not enough.

Also please advise for other Indian B-schools IIMs , XLRI, S.P. Jain

Hi aditya2288,

Don't feel bad, 700 is still a good score. With that score and your work experience at John Deere + your good GPA, I am sure that with my help, you will be able to find the best school which fits your needs. As a veteran Admissions Consultant with a 750 GMAT score, I have 7 years of teaching experience, a Rotman MBA, and a career in Banking. My services are targeted to professionals committed to taking their career to the next level.

I have been trained at, and have worked for two major test prep institutions, and have taught hundreds of satisfied students in Canada, the US, Hong Kong, and Tokyo. I have helped students get into Ivy League and top European MBA programs.

I specialize in:
-GMAT Teaching/Tutoring
-Application Consulting (Determining the right schools for your goals, and developing an application plan)
-Resume Building
-Essay Drafting
-Mock Interviewing

For questions or scheduling, please contact me at gmatbydavid-at-gmail.com, or visit my website at gmatbydavid.com

Looking forward to working with you!
David

For IIMs (getting into via GMAT) you experience is well below their average and the GMAT score is low. For ISB, you experience (quantity) is good. Also you work for John Deere, then I guess you must be a mechanical graduate. So you are out of the IT pool, which is good. You can apply for ISB though the GMAT score is a tad below average. But given your profile and essays, that you will have to write, you will get an interview call. I am no expert, just sharing my experience from R2 this year.

Hope this helps. I dont know much about XLRI's and SP Jain's MBA programs through GMAT.

Get a GMAT score above ISB average GMAT score, and get more work experience 3 years plus is advised. Else you must be able to convince the interview panel and the adcom (through essays) as to why do you need MBA at this particular time, because they will tell you to get more work ex.
