INSEAD is a B school that prefers candidates who are multi lingual......So if u want INSEAD, u must have a sound knowledge of say spanish , french etc......You are IR score is appealing but overall GMAT score is below avg for the progs that u mentioned..But ur profile as a whole is gr8...i mean a law student landed up in finance...Use it to its max....i mean concoct stories....Ur academics is also avg...u ll have to slog real hard on ur applications....However i feel u gt a good chance at Rottman as its avg GMAT , I believe is close to urs.....

Dear Archit,

thank you for your response and profile evaluation. Do you think I should retake the GMAT? Can you also suggest some alternative B Schools, where I might stand a chance, with my profile.

Best Regards,

Sourabh Ghosh

Is there any problem if u consider deferring ur application untill nxt fall. u definitely stand a chance at wharton or any other school...u just need to work properly on them kkkkkk there are many aspect u shud think....moreover with 2 year work ex its really difficult for us b school. I am not discouraging u .....bt see the flip side....that u got one year ...consider it as CEo in making...work on other parts of essay social service...etc i mean sthn out of the box and meanwhile continue with the gmat prep....i would discourage considering second rung colls..u have gt astellar profiel and an excellent gmat score.....use it to the best....
