Hi,

I am planning to apply for various programs in the Fall 2014 intake , would be obliged if you evaluate my profile

GMAT: 670 (Q 44, V38)
TOEFL: 114
Work Experience: 4.5 years experience as a Project Manager in a Fortune 500 Automobile company (Manufacturing), joined as Assistant Manager promoted to Manager within 2 yrs

My target programs: MIT Sloan, Yale
I am interested in an Operations / Strategy profile in a top-tier manufacturing firm or in an Operations Consulting role post-MBA

My questions:
1. What are my chances for getting admitted in these programs?
2. I took the GRE to improve my Quant score to 94%ile since two attempts at GMAT did not provide any significant increase (63%ile). However, my Verbal score in GRE reduced a bit, from 84%ile in GMAT to 73%ile in GRE.Should I mention GMAT Verbal scores in my application / optional essay to improve my chances?
3. Are AWA scores important in the B-school application? I scored better on the GMAT: 5.5 & 5 (77%ile & 57%ile) but could score 4 (54%ile) in GRE

Thanks for your valuable time addressing my query..!

Hey there!
thanks for dropping by.

so you have some good stuff in your profile. First is your quick promotion, your non-IT industry, being female and your very nice GPA! So lots going for you!

On the challenges side you have your GMAT (at least for the schools you are aiming), and your applicant pool (as an Indian).

For the two programs you mentioned though, things will be a bit tough (they both pretty much rank as stretch schools). So the question is: what do you want to do? and when? do you want to retake the GMAT? Are you applying next year or this? What are the advantages of each path? I wrote a post a while back about retaking the GMAT, and you may want to read that: to-retake-or-not-to-retake-that-is-the-question-indian-153716.html

Other than that: Your GMAT score is just as good as your GRE, so I'd go with using the GMAT (if you are not retaking). And if you retake I'd equally recommend taking the GMAT. As for the AMA, don't worry about it. It doesn't mean all that much yet. and a 5.5 is good.
