Hi ,

My GMAT score is 660 (Q47,V34)
Did my Graduation in Electrical Engineering
Work Ex - 6.5 years ( Have been to US twice for (short term visits))
From IT background- Currently Working as a Data Analyst in Health Care domain , 5 years exp in Banking domain

I am looking forward to join a good college in Asia, US and Europe
My score is average but I would like to know if I can apply for XLRI , SP jain , NUS-singapore, RMS - Europe
and where all i can apply in US.


I am thinking to rather apply for a few good colleges and then if nothing happens , give the GMAT again next year

Please Help

Hi Boney,
It just might serve you better to retake the GMAT this year and then apply. My reasons for saying so are:
1. You have the disdvantage of a low GMAT score in a highly competitive applicant pool - the highly feared male, IT, Indian. Okay, cliched statements apart, the GMAT score is still low!
2. The b-schools on your list have a higer average GMAT score than yours, so your application will begin with a disadvantage there.
3. With 6.5 years of work experience behind you, you are not getting any younger next year. Besides writing applications is physically and emotionally draining, and you have a big list to work with. So you might as well do it right the first time around and save yourself the trouble for next year.

All this might change if you have an absolutely wow profile and the low GMAT looks like a mere glitch. You have not mentioned anything about your personal, professional or academic accomplishments, so it will be hard to judge that.

Namita,

Thank You Namita for your valuable feedback.
As far as my profile is concerned , i do not have any major academic achievements except some quiz contest winning certificates at the school level and organizing the college's cultural fest twice. So i think, (after your feedback ) giving the GMAT again in a months time would be the right thing to do. But, can you suggest me some good colleges in the US where i might still make the cut?

Thanks,
Boney
