Urgent- gmat tomorrow. Need to shortlist schools. [#permalink] New post 30 Aug 2011, 04:55
Hi all. I have my GMAT tomorrow. I am expecting a score of around 730-740
Because that's what GMAT score calculator told me, and i've been scoring in that range too often.

Please tell me which colleges i must choose for sending scores? I'm from India, engineering background, gpa of 9.7 on 10,
but just one year of work experience. No international or client exposure. Please help me shortlist the universities for now.. once i get my final score, i can make the final call based on other studies about the business schools. But for now, suggest me something please.

Bro - no one can pick your schools for you. Asking anyone to do that is just silly. Obviously you still need to do the research and determine which schools are right for you. Nobody on this forum is going to know which schools you want to go to better than you yourself. Clearly you still have time to think about it since you only have one year of work experience, so if you don't know where to send your scores, just pick 5 schools and be done with it. Then in 3 years when you're actually applying, you can send additional scores to whichever other schools you actually want to go to.

Yeah totally right.. but as you said, "just be done with it".. that was what i was intending to so.. didnt want to think too much over it.. so i thought that may be someone would just gimme 5 names and i'd be over with it.. i know its silly !! but i guess i'd attribute it more to my laziness than silliness.. :P

Thanks !
Regards.

Good Luck!
Hopefully you are more prepared for the GMAT than for the school selection!
