Hi Nikitat1,

You should definitely look forward to applying in the coming round. 690 score is not a low score, especially in the context of your relevant profile for McCombs (which is a champion of energy management). I'd suggest starting the application process. Research the merits of their curriculum and speak to current students. Also, get in touch with the admission committee to better understand your fit. Also, take a look at other schools which specialize in energy courses.

Hi there,

I cannot comment on your chances this year but here are some useful stats on last year's intake :
https://gmatclub.com/forum/calling-all- ... l#p1698438

U can download that table and see the gmat score & no. of years of experience of Indians.

Also, I would suggest keep an eye on first round's result this year and talk to some of the current Indian female students at McCombs.

Hope this helps.

Thx for d boost up. Just one more query. If I didn't get through this year. How much it is recommended to apply next year with a better score.

Reapplications are very common in US B Schools. And improving your score and then applying next year is always an option.
Even while applying this year, you can mention that you'll retake the GMAT (if you intend to take it real soon). Some schools specifically ask for this.

Ideally, between the time you submit your application (R2 deadline) and the time they start rolling interview invites (one week after deadline). PM me and I can get you in touch with someone who got an interview invite with 690.
