Have you thought about retaking?

A 700+ could really help the adcoms to overlook your GPA.

Hi there,

I can't, from your post, tell how many years of work experience you have. It seems to be on the lower side, but I can't be sure.

If that's the case, however, I agree with ato308. Given your nationality, your GPA is well below the average and your GMAT is low too. For your applicant pool, a score that starts with a "7" is table stakes and, with your GPA, you really need to knock the GMAT out of the park.

Hi mate,

I'm really not trying to be frustrating when I post this response - I'm merely being honest. Don't worry about schools yet. For the moment, retake the GMAT and get as high a score as possible.

The school selection process takes a lot into account and you aren't in the ideal position to have that conversation just yet. It will do you no good if I start rattling off a list of schools that will accept a 700 without a) knowing your actual GMAT score and b) knowing a whole lot more about you. Honestly, if I was to do that, I'd list 30 schools and it wouldn't help you one bit.

I know you're looking for a list of schools but if you're trying to go from A to Z, go in a logical way. Don't go from A to D to B to M, right? Retake the GMAT, that's the next step. Once you have your next score in hand, then let's talk schools.

Good luck on retaking them!
