Urgent help needed regarding UC Davis full time MBA [#permalink] New post 10 Jun 2007, 14:40
Hello All,

I applied to UC Davis MBA and Santa Clara University(SCU).My score is 580 with 3 years of experience. I got admission in SCU and was on the waiting list at Davis.So when i attended the interview at Davis recently they said that everything else seems fine but we would appreciate if you can take GMAT again.They didnot guarantee that if i score well i would get admitted.So i would like to know would it make sense to write the gmat in two months or join SCU? If anyone had a same experience could please share it with me?

Appreciate your valuable insights.

Thanks,
Swetha.

Swetha,

Tough situation. I assume you are saying that SCU needs your answer now, and that if you stay on UCD's W-L you will have to blow SCU off? If so, then if you need to be in an MBA program this fall then go for SCU. If you can afford to wait a year then you could roll the dice on the following events occurring: (1) you will raise your GMAT score the 80 points or more you need to to be competitive at UCD, (2) UCD will have a place for you if you do. Those are probably long odds, but they could happen. But if UCD does ding you, then you could just use the extra year to improve your profile and try again next year.

Good luck,

Hi, Swetha. You didn't mention your career goals but they may influence your decision in two ways: 1) if you are targeting an industry in which GMAT scores are used in the recruiting/hiring process, then you will want to boost your GMAT score anyway, and 2) if Davis has stronger recruiting in your target industry, then it would make sense to hold out for that "better" offer. If SCU is going to open the doors you need, then there doesn't seem a reason to throw that bird in hand away. Good luck making your decision - let us know what you decided!
