580 may be too low a score for ISB. Try and increase it by around 60-70 points at least, and even then, you should have a strong profile and a strong application. ISB's average GMAT is 707, with the range 600-780. Statistics here: http://www.isb.edu/pgp/peer-group/class-profile

I’d say the answer depends on

- can you take another test?
- is 580 an incorrect reflection of what you were scoring in your mocks?
- will you be able to make stellar essays that somehow compensate for 580? (Even though each factor carries its own weightage)

My reply got posted midway.

As Gyanone rightly pointed out, ISB says that the range is 600-780. Getting your score up will never be a bad thing so that’s one way to look at it.

I will have to wait for jan intake then. Assuming I have a strong profile with stellar essays will 580 be even considered?

Yes but the thing is - ample time till jan, just do a very focused study cycle and I’m sure your score will move up.
