Should I retake the GMAT? (Profile Evaluation Needed) [#permalink] New post 22 Nov 2011, 20:48
Second time at the GMAT and got 710 (Q-44, V-44). I would like to apply for second round at Wharton, Harvard and Stanford. Should I retake the GMAT or am I competitive enough for these schools?

Below are details for my application:

25-old Female Canadian (Ethnicity:Asian)

Undergrad: 3.6 GPA at Wharton/UPenn -Dual degree (BA and BS) for International Relations and Finance

Work History: 3 years as a risk manager for top tier institution bank
-hired as an analyst, promoted to AVP in less than 2 yrs and currently nominated for VP consideration
-2 times recognized with gold-level award for performance

Activities: Teaching salsa, painting, member of Wharton Women, Penn Alumni

Recommendations: Planning on getting recommendations from 3 managing directors that I've worked for- prior head of the group, current head of the group and direct manager

Post MBA: Working in social entrepreneurship/economic development (IFC/World Bank, private fund in emerging markets or social funds/NGOs such as Roots Capital and Oxfam). Harvard and Stanford both programs of social social entrepreneurship and economic development while Wharton has a public policy major.

Would greatly appreciate your advice! Thanks

As a Canadian female, graduate of UPenn, with amazing work experience you don't need to retake. Your score is wonderful, wonderful+ :)
Just make them great essays and have your recommenders extol you to the heavens...
:)
