Should I retake GMAT [#permalink] New post 29 Jun 2004, 22:25
Hi Scott & Omari,

I took GMAT yesterday and got 650 (Q49 & V31) after preparing for 3 months (took Kaplan classroom too). My expectation was 700+. My practice tests and GMATClub.com's score estimator were estimating 720. I am not sure what went wrong, but did poorly in verbal than I expected. Should I take GMAT again?

Profile:

Age : 28
Nationality : Indian
Living In : USA
Job : Working as Project Manager for small software consulting firm, but provide consulting services for a fortune 100 company. I am sure I can get extremely good recommendation letters from my client.
Experience : 5+ years (good growth in terms of pay and responsibilities)
GMAT : 650
UG GPA : ~3.2 (8.2 on 10 scale)
Bachelors : Food Science & Technology
Extra curricular activities at university level : County level Secratary for a students union for an year and state level secretary for three more years. Active participant in community, university activities.
Current extra curricular activities : Active participation in one Non-profit organization and contributor to several others. Co-ordinator of Alumni activities.
Target Schools: Sloan, Wharton, Columbia, Kellog, Chicago, UCB
Can you give me an idea on what my chances are and what steps can I take towards my target schools?

Thank you and I appreciate your help.

Rav,

Personally, I would recommend retaking the GMAT given your target schools. Less than 10% of applicants get into those schools with your GMAT score. Now, we strongly believe that there is a possibility that you could get in despite the score, but given the fact that you still have a lot of time and that your GPA isn't especially strong, I'd definitley recommend retaking.

Thank you truthringer! I will strongly consider retaking it. However, I can take it again only in septemeber due to my work schedules. I will keep you posted on how it goes.
