I am a 30 year old female from India who has been living and working in the silicon valley for the past 9 years. I attempted the GMAT 2 months back and scored only a 640!!
Professional exp has been 9 years as an engineer in the research and development division at Intel. Steady promotions, Team Lead etc
My Undergrad GPA is 2.87 from Carnegie Mellon in Electrical Engineering (Top 10 engineering school in the US)
Part-time Grad School while working full-time- Local school - 3.6 GPA in Computer Engineering
My Post MBA goals are Product Marketing, Product management/strategy, Business Development in the same sector/industry since I thoroughly enjoy tech!!
With a low GPA and GMAT score and my age, I am not sure what is the best course of action. I can re-attempt the GMAT and try and pull my score to a 700+.
Can I aim for full-time programs or are part-time programs better for me? Some programs that interest me are the Berkeley PT MBA, UCLA Full-time, Duke Full time, Ross Full time etc.
I prefer FT programs. With a 700+ will I be competitive in FT programs?
