Hi Sesha,

Thanks for your post. For your question ,although there are many factors that an admissions team will consider in your application, your GMAT score is important and your score is a fair amount below the averages of the programs you are considering. For this reason I do recommend you take the exam again. One thing that is important to remember is that your highest GMAT score is self-reported on your application, so admissions teams will focus on your best score.

If you do decide to take the exam again, we provide free GMAT advice here: http://www.stacyblackman.com/test-prep-hub/. MBA.com also provides 2 free official GMAT practice tests.

Are there any specific MBA programs you are currently considering?

Cheers,
Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
