Reapplying at Vanderbilt Owen MBA - Need help please! [#permalink] New post 22 Aug 2011, 00:08
Hi,

I will be reapplying to Vanderbilt Owen School of Business this year for class of fall 2012. I had applied last year but i did not receive an admit. But I am now desperately seeking admission at Owen because this year as my husband joined Vanderbilt University for his MS course (I am newly married).

While he is in US , I am in India alone. My company finds me as an asset and in order to help me join my husband this year , they provided me an Intra Company transfer work visa to US and also allowed me to stay and work from Nashville. I was suppose to come to Nashville along with my husband on Aug 20th this year but unfortunately due to a sudden market crash in US, the job posting for which I was being sent to Nashville has got cancelled. My company is still trying their best to send me to Nashville as I hold a valid work visa but they are still uncertain.

Meanwhile , I am want to join Owen not only because I am interested in an MBA program program but aslo I can live with my husband. I had secured an admit at George Washington University's Global MBA program for fall 2011 but I did not accept the admission thinking that my company is giving me an excellent offer to stay with my husband, earn a good salary as well as work on project management. Now that this unfortunate thing has happened with me, I am trying to secure an admit at Owen, reapplying at GWU.
My gmat score is 640 (V36,Q41, AW6)
Toefl 111 out of 120 (CBT)
Work ex - 4+ years in IT

Please advise me how can I improve my application in order to secure an admit. I know that everyone would ask me to retake gmat but that is not an option for me now as I am mentally very stressed and I know I will perform really bad if I retake it.

Thanks in advance!

I am so sorry to hear about this bad break! Unfortunately, you didn't tell me about anything else in your work or extracurricular life, so I cannot comment on ways to improve your application from those perspectives. All I can tell you is that Vanderbilt's GMAT average is over 670, so unless you have exceptional leadership experience in the IT sector, you are going to need to pull up your score to distinguish yourself from the many other applicants from your industry. Try relaxation techniques, meditation, or talking via skype to your husband 3 times a day: whatever it takes to keep you calm and testing well ;-)
