Hey all, I just did the gmat and scored a 640. I have 6 years of work ex in my family business and I graduated from the University of Southern California with a BSc in Business Administration with 2.76 GPA.
I'm looking at RSM, IE and maybe ESADE and as a dream school, Insead. Is my gmat score good enough for these schools? Should I retake the gmat?

First of all, you might want to take a look at this list of 1 year programs, including the European ones as that will give you some direction: https://aringo.com/mba-1y-one-year-programs/

What GMAT score you need in order to have a realistic chance of admission to the schools you mentioned depends on the rest of your profile as some other aspects can mitigate for a low GMAT score, so if you’d like a better understanding of your chances, you can use our chances calculator for a quick check as well as for a request of a full profile evaluation: https://aringo.com/mba-admission-chances-calculator/

But in general, I would say that your GMAT score is too low for all of these schools unless you have something else in your profile that makes up for it.

Hi knik25,

I think you should retake the test, as your GPA too is low. Try reaching at least the median score of the school. You wouldn’t want to spend several weeks on your applications and then finding that your test score somehow negated that effort. Ideally, you should apply with the best score you can notch.

Hi, I am 26 years old and from India, wishing to apply to a good European b-school for full time MBA. I gave my GMAT last week and got 710. I have 3 year of work experience with KPMG as strategy consultant (supply chain transformation) which includes a promotion and several client commendations. After the same, I successfully ventured into my entrepreneurial advent and launched a restaurant, which is doing pretty well. I also have a 6 month internship with McKinsey and Company. Did my engineering 2014 with 74% (~7.2 GPA). Now I wish to apply to a good European B School, with my preferences being (in order):
1. INSEAD
2. LBS
3. HEC
4. Judge (Cambridge)
5. IMD
6. Said (Oxford)
7. LSE
8. Imperial
9. IE
10. NYU (Only US school)

Please suggest me if my profile is good enough to get through these schools.

Hi aseemsuri91,

Apologies for the slight delay in responding to you but we hope this finds you in time.

We are assuming that you will be applying in R1 in the next session as chances are not as great in the later rounds for most of these schools.

While the work experience etc, coupled with the promotions, seems good, we do not have much information on the kind of achievements you have had at both workplaces, and on your career goals (which should ideally be in perfect sync with your existing experience). Further, while the 710 well meets the average score of even INSEAD (the highest ranked school in your list), you could look at boosting the score just a bit as the GMAT expectations from Indians are always on the higher side. To add to this, your focus should also be on preparing a set of essays that are not only reflective of your true potential but also showcase a synced-up set of career goals :)

Hence, you definitely have a good chance at a lot of the programs in consideration provided we are able to put forth a strong application :)

Reach out in case you need clarity on anything else :)

All the best!
