Hi there,

Thanks for your post. Wondering if you would consider re-taking the GMAT? As it could greatly help your chances of admission. Perhaps with some tutoring or coursework with an aim to improve? Schools take the highest score, and it's fairly common to re-take. NUS could be quite tough to get into at this point, but certainly there are likely schools in Asia and elsewhere that you could have a shot.... but breaking 600 or 650 would really help too. ;) Think about what types of jobs you see yourself doing post-MBA, and then assess whether schools you are looking at will help you with those goals. Look at hiring profiles, in addition to curriculum. Good luck and keep us posted!

hi
thanks for the info but the problem is that the deadlines for universities has started and i have very little time to prepare so doubtful of taking the exam again. can you shed some courses that have the same value of an MBA.
regards

Hiya,

Well my gut overall would say if you feel you're short on time, AND not thrilled with your GMAT, you may want to consider holding off and submitting in the fall, to start the following year, just a thought. Generally you'd have the best chances at schools with an average GMAT of 580-620 or thereabouts. Could you get in somewhere with a higher average score? It's not impossible, but your application would have to be AMAZING in so many ways, also tough to do if short on time, and you'd really have to stand out as an above-average applicant. In Asia, perhaps you could look at Peking U, Guanghua. Hult has a multi continent program that includes Asia, though still a little out of your reach, more reasonable than some you listed. In the US you'd look outside the top 50-60 in US news rankings for best chances. In Europe, could look at bit at schools like Warwick or Cranfield in the UK. Time to do some researching, and again taking a step back, my feeling is you would do a much better job if you start working NOW on an application and plan to apply in the fall, just a thought. Good luck to you on all of your decisions!
