27 year old - Indian Female.
BS computer science (3.88 GPA) SUNY
MS in Information technology (3.81 GPA) from Rensellaer.
5+ years working at a manufacturing firm as a Computer programmer/Analyst.
GMAT (680 Q44,V41).
My top 5 choices are- Harvard, Wharton, Stanford,NYU and Columbia.
Should i retake the GMAT? My Quant was lower than 80th percentile, in the 73 percentile.
What are my chances with these schools?
Linda- thank you very much for your response.
I think that if i retake the GMAT i can raise Quant. I have very strong recommendations from my manager and the CEO of the company. I am a programmer, but i do a lot of process improvement stuff in manufacturing, come up with ideas, am a self starter and have recommendations to back up my leadership at work. The company is established, however is relatively small (about 400 employees).
Do you think i should hold on for third round for a better GMAT score? Or maybe do third round for a couple of the schools?
I am applying to 8 schools- harvard, wharton, stanford, columbia, NYU, Cornell,Duke and UCLA.
Thanks again for your comments.
