Hi Scott

I wrote my GMAT last week and was disappointed with my score. Got pathetic 640..Break-up was M 49 V 28 :( Verbal score is really bad..

I was targetting 10-20 ranked US B-Schools but now it seems to be out of reach. What should be my next startegies? Shall i retake GMAT,whcih i dont want to do, or shall i target lower ranked B-schools or schools in Canada, whcih accepts low GMAT scores.

Brief intro of my background. I have done my B.Tech From Indian Institute of Technologies. I have 3 years of IT experience. Some small time leadership experience as well. I have good amount of experience in working with people of different nationality in a team and client interaction experiences. I have been involved in community service those with poor children and women education for the last couple of years. I am seriously concentrating on my essays and recomendation letters. Also planning to consider some professionals help.

Will i go forward with this score and target low ranked schools or still some top schools are in my reach or retake the test? Your few words will be very encouraging for me.

Thanx and Regards

Definitely consider taking the exam again. If your score was much lower than what you'd been scoring on practice exams, then maybe you just had a bad day. If your practice exams have also been in the low-/mid-600's, then consider taking a class, or at least using some new prep materials that you haven't tried before.

Don't worry about timing... You still have plenty of time to take a class or prepare yourself in some other way, retake the exam, and then apply in Round 2. (And Round 2 is just as good as Round 1 in terms of your odds of success.) Definitely don't give up yet!

hi Scott

Thanx for your suggestion. I will take the test whenever dates are available. One more doubt ... Is my profile competitive enough? Or shall i gain couple of years of experience at managerial level and then apply?...Or is it seems ok to you?

Thanx and Regards

I would say that the biggest danger is that your application prfile sounds very similar to many others that I have seen. The more leadership experience you can gain (both on the job AND outside of the job) before you apply, the better. So, if you think there's a good chance that you can gain significant new experiences in the next 12 months, then consider waiting until next year. If not, then there's probably not much to gain by waiting. But gaining more leadership experience (by leading a team or running a big project at work, leading a large event for your NGO, etc.) will only make your application stronger.
