Do you think it would be advisable to retake the GMAT. I took it this past monday and scored the 650. I was planning on taking it again on december 4th but am not sure if i should. I plan on starting my applications ASAP. Thank you for your time.
Good to hear from you dude. Sooooo, first of all, I think that you may need to rethink your strategy a wee bit. Right now, the schools you have selected are a bit tough for you. Your GMAT really isn't in range, and that, plus a 3.0 GPA will make them very challenging. So basically you need to think about what you do now. Your choices are basically to either accept the GMAT you have and compromise with the schools, or to retake the GMAT until you have a score which would make you a good candidate for those schools. In your case, I'd recommend going with choice 2. I mean you only took the GMAT once so far, and it is quite normal to take it two three, four times if necessary. Applying with the best possible GMAT score you can get is the best way to get into the best school you can get into.
