I am currently undecided about what level of US B Schools my profile 'fits' with having scored a 660 with a very unbalanced quant and verbal score. I am concerned that I will be unable to improve my verbal score to a sufficient level having struggled with quat throughout my GMAT experience. My main question is what US colleges should I be applying to with the profile below. Many thanks for reading! Any advice is much appreciated
I am planning to apply to B School in the USA in 2013 with 3 years work experience.
1) Basic demographic info:
25 year old, white Irish male based in UK
2) Educational Background:
Undergraduate major in business (1st class honours/4.0 GPA)
Msc in Marketing & Strategy from top UK university (1st class honours)
I have also spent a year studying abroad in the USA during which I got a Deans List award. I also got academic scholarships to both the undergraduate and MSC courses.
I took the GMAT in June of 2011 and scored 660 (36 quant 44 verbal). I am concerned that my score is unbalanced with a low quant score.
I studied many quant courses in college (economics, maths and statistics) and got scored highly in all these college courses.
3) Work experience:
I currently work as a project manager for a large international environmental services company in their recycling division. This role involves managing special projects and bidding for government contracts.
I have worked for 2 years with 2 companies in the environmental sector and have achieved promotions from entry level positions to management level positions in both companies.
One of my roles in my first company involved managing the acquisition of a smaller entity which is a field that I would like to pursue after my prospective MBA.
I volunteer in a local recycling initiative and I have participated in a 3 month volunteering programme to India in 2009 which involved organizing a local micro-finance project.
My role in the local recycling initiative involves writing business plans and I have been involved with this for the last 6 months.
5) Short/Long term goals:
My long term goal is to work in the PE field focusing on the environmental and renewable energy sector. I would ideally like to work short term in the emerging markets of India and China and long term in Europe.
I do not currently have a set list of schools due to my concerns over my unbalanced GMAT score. I would prefer to attend an MBA course in the USA.
