Travelled to more than 10 countries! Top European schools? [#permalink] New post 20 Aug 2005, 23:22
Dear Linda,

I have given my gmat twice and scored 640 (Q48,V30, AWA 4.5) and 650 (Q49,V30, AWA 5.0). I believe that my scores are low, but am counting on experience and other parts of my profile.

I wish to apply to INSEAD, IMD, LBS or Oxford. I am looking for a career in finance.

Please could you assess my chances. Should I retake the gmat?

Here is my detailed profile

Nationality: Indian
Age at Sep 2006: 26 yrs
Qualitifications: Chartered Accountant (India) [equivalent to CPA in the US]
Last Designation: Internal Auditor (reporting to the MD in a flat organisation)
Years of experience at Sep 2006: 6 yrs (excluding 2 years of fulltime articleship )

work experience: During the last 2 years, I have travelled and worked in more than 10 countries (in europe, north africa and russia) for a major telecom provider based in Europe. Before that worked with KPMG India for 3 years.

GPA: not sure how to calculate it due to a different education system in India. But would be in the top 20 of the class.

Extra-curricular:
Have received award from the President of India on achieving highest award for a boy scout in India at the age of 18. Had been training boy scouts until I started travelling.
Have been school and college captain of the table-tennis (ping-pong) team for 3 and 5 years respectively.

thanks for the help

Best regards
Ruzbeh

I'm sorry, but I am pessimitic about your chances at INSEAD, IMD, LBS or Oxford, but your most likely admit is Oxford.

I think a higher GMAT is important if you want to have a serious chance at these schools. You have to decide if there was something that contributed to the less than desired score or if you gave it your all, did the best you could, and now need to reconsider the schools that you are applying to.

Good luck!
