Expert's post
Hi there,

Wow, you've got very impressive professional and community experience. I think your work experience is very strong, your entrepreneurial experience is also really impressive, and your community leadership roles are robust. You'll definitely be a stand out candidate. The only snag in your profile, as you are probably aware, is your very low GMAT score :(

It's going to be pretty tough to get admission with a 610, but you've already taken the test twice and have scored similarly both times, so it doesn't seem like a retake would greatly improve your score. I'd say that there is definitely a chance that your professional, entrepreneurial and community experience could help you overcome your GMAT score, so you should still try for your target schools. Otherwise, you could consider lower tier schools or perhaps part-time programs.

Best of luck,
Mili
