Unsatisfying Second GMAT Score- What Can I Do Next? [#permalink] New post 15 Jan 2010, 18:22
This is a question we received before. Sharing with the forum members here.

Guys: I just got back a very disappointing 2nd GMAT. I'm not sure what I'm going to do next...

This time I got a 640: Q49 V28. During the verbal test, I suddenly realized that I had only 18 minutes to finish 25 questions.

The first time I took the test, I got a 660: Q47 V33.

I think I am done with the GMAT. I have already devoted enough of my time - so I don't think I will take it a third time.

I have 4 yrs work experience in automotive manufacturing and R&D: 2 yrs in India, 2 yrs in US, 3 month project in Japan. There's nothing too special in my resume, just a promotion from Engineer to Sr. Engineer. I have an MS degree 3.8/4.0. BSc 3.1/4.0.

I have good rural community service and rural community organization for 3 years during and after my undergrad. What are my chances at INSEAD, UCLA, ISB and ROSS? Is it realistic for me to think I can get into a school above those, or are those schools out of my range too? Where do I have a good chance of admission? (Ohio State, SMU, etc?)

Given the information that you provide, I would say that your GMAT scores are on the low side for INSEAD, UCLA, ISB and ROSS. However, for most of the schools the 660 score is borderline for most of these schools -- and if you really want to go to one of these schools, you should definitely apply. However, you have to make sure that your essays, recommendations, interviews, etc. are all top notch.

As for schools that are slightly less competitive, like Ohio State and SMU, I would say that your chances of admissions are quite high. However, there is a pretty big difference between your dream schools and your back-up schools and we encourage you to investigate other options.
