Hello,

I just took the GMAT and scored a 700 (44Q 41V) and I don't know if I should retake it. I took it a second time without studying much more and I scored 590 which was pretty disappointing. I want to apply to HBS, Stanford, Wharton, Northwestern, Booth, and Columbia. Could you please tell me your opinion on my chances on each of these?

Undergrad: Notre Dame (Double Major: Finance and History) 3.52 GPA
GMAT: 700 (44Q 41V) - 93% Verbal and 63% Quant, 6 AWA, 7 IR
Work Experience: Doing Investment Banking at Citi. Don't know how long until doing MBA but at least 2-3 years in the program.
Other Activities: Planning on taking CFA Level 1, have led a small fund with high school friends and we have achieved competitive results, skiing, a lot of traveling.

I have also had internships along the years 3 in a Panamanian commercial bank, 1 in a real estate development fund in Panama, 1 in a private wealth management firm in Miami.

I am from Panama and speak 4 languages, I spent two summers in Switzerland and one in Italy before going to college.

Fluent in Spanish
Fluent in English
Conversant in French
Basic Italian

Please let me know your outlook on this. Thank you for your help.

You have a chance at all 5 programs, but I would say that each is a stretch. Given your international background, investment banking experience, fluency in multiple languages, GPA, and CFA, I think there is a chance at least one of these program will overlook your quant score.That's obviously your weakness.

So give it your best, hope for the best, and if you aren't accepted, retake the GMAT and apply again next year.
Best,
Linda
