My question here is, when according to you is the right time to give GMAT? considering that i'm 22 years old now. Also how do you think i can work towards improving my profile so that it stands out from the general profiles that a b-school gets to see. what is the minimum score that i should secure to be able to at least apply to the best b-schools.
sorry it isn't a post gmat question but rather a pre gmat one. I hope you'd be able to help.
