I just gave the GMAT today and it didn't go all that well. Here's what I got:
Q - 33
V - 36
Total - 580

I wanted some advice on which schools I can apply to. I have a work experience of more than 9 yrs. I wanted information on whether this would help me get into schools like - University of Florida (Warrington College of Business) Gainesville, University of Texas Austin (Red McCombs School of Business), Indiana University Bloomington (Kelley School of Business), etc.

I do plan to take the GMAT again but wanted to weigh in my options with the current score. It would be of great help if there is someone in the forum who can help me with some pointers.

I would write about my experience of taking the GMAT but will leave it for another day - on the whole, my quant went bad, timing in particular, and that affected the verbal to an extent.

I have a GPA of 1.5 as a graduate (that is how my grad, B-Tech in Electrical and Electronics Engineering, percentage matched to the GPA) and I am a software professional currently working as a Project Manager with a team of 10 plus people.

Do you mean 3.5?

Are you "Indian IT"? if so, you have got to raise the Q score.

Thanks for the response - even I think my quant score could be better.
I took the GMATPreps and my last 2 scores were 700 and 730 (before that 640 and 630) and my quants were pretty good though I was worried about my verbal. I did pace myself ok at the start but towards the middle I got stuck with a few questions, which actually I could have solved faster. Anyways it was one of those days.
Any other advice from anyone else? I could with all and lot more.

You sound like you have a genuine case for retaking the GMAT, go ahead and get a 700+, which should bring you at par with the rest of the applicants from your demographic.
I must say 1.5 as a GPA does not make any sense, are you using some kind of conversion chart?

Take the GMAT again. I went from a 580 to a 720. Im sure you can do it too. It will open up many more options for you.

Tharun,

I am in the same boat. Got 590 and currently preparing to take it again. My practice scores were 670+.

UT-Austin has always been competitive and couple of years back they have reduced the number of FT students admitted from ~ 600 to ~ 300. Went to their info session recently and found that their avg GMAT is 670 and range is 600-740.
I would take the GMAT again and try for a competitive score.
