I am repeating the question that I asked on accepted.com
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
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)
Experience as 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 service 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.
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
