Hope all of you are having a good time.

I need help to choose my MBA school and scholarships/Graduate Assistant or any other financial support. So, below you will find some highlights of my profile along with the constraints I am facing.

Education Plans
Interested in - MBA (Full Time)
Countries in which I am interested - USA, UK & Australia

Profile Highlights

Professional Education - B.E. Mechanical Engineering (4-Years) - University of Engineering & Technology, Lahore, Pakistan
CGPA - 3.78
Work Experience - 3 years to date at Management Positions
Organizations worked at - Unilever (1.25 years) & British American Tobacco (1.75 years)
GMAT Score - 550
International Representation - Have represented Pakistan twice at Leadership Training Conference held on the platform of American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) at USA


Financial Issues - Need a scholarship in order to pursue an expensive program like MBA
Low GMAT Score - Although it can be improved, as this was my first attempt for GMAT. However, I would like to only improve if you would suggest me keeping in view as a necessary requirement for scholarship

So, summarizing, in view of the above information, I would be seeking for your advice to get admission in one of the good business schools with a fully funded scholarship. I know, that my GMAT score is less but it can be overcome with my GPA and management work experience with leading multi-nationals of the world at good management positions.

Looking forward to your reply & advice.

Hi farhanmoghal1,

Thanks for posting. For your business school application, I do recommend you take the GMAT test again. One thing that is important to remember is that your highest GMAT score is self-reported on your application, so admissions teams will focus on your best score. This will be an area considered for a potential scholarship.

If you decide to take the exam again, we provide free GMAT advice here:
