I know my GMAT score is lacking but I want to apply to some universities before I retake the GMAT, hoping to get at least a few admits just in case the second GMAT does not go well
Please suggest some universities where I can safely apply at this score - I want to apply to good universities where my score is acceptable and i can expect to get a call with a good profile. I have heard that re application is hard so I do not want to apply to any good universities where I may have a better chance next time around. Initially, I was very confident that I could get a better GMAT score due to below average quant performance on test day due to special circumstances; but now, after a month - I don't really feel like taking the GMAT again if not necessary. So, I'm really hoping to get some valuable inputs here!
I have looked at universities in Canada, Singapore, HongKong and US too. I have a preference for Asia but if i don't make it there then I am open to any good US universities that you can suggest for me at this score. The most important factor for me is career placement after graduation as I will most probably be taking a loan for the course.
Please help me out. Thanks for your time.
Hi Reaper, I think you would be at a disadvantage at the top 25 b-schools (US News rankings). However, consider your application a collective of your GMAT scores, academics, career details and extra curricular achievements. If you can put together a good application and make a wise selection of b-schools, that will be beneficial for you.
Asian b-schools like NUS and NTU tend to go higher on the GMAT, specially for Indian applicants, so your score would be a definite disadvantage there. You can apply to some Canadian programs like Queens and Schulich, and expect a good result (on condition of a good application
