One of the biggest problems right now I am facing is my GMAT score (690). I have connected with a lot of Admission consultants who are slowly and slowly telling me that the current top 30 colleges are something that are completely out of scope.
I have almost 6 years of advertising work experience with a degree in Engineering. I have also help co found a fashion luxury brand with which I was a part for almost 1.5 years. During this time period, I was also working with an agency.
What I want to know is that realistically should I even apply this year or should I go back to the drawing board and start my prep for GMAT again?
And if I am to apply, what colleges can I look forward to given that I am trying to build a career in Marketing under Product Management/ Consultancy.

Hi there!

Well, I donot believe top 30 are completely out of your reach.

Though I can say top 15 are a bit tough unless you have a steller profile, I would prefer applying to schools in the range of 20-30.

Remember GMAT is only one part of the application. So, if you apply sooner and present the other elements of your application in the best possible ways, I think you may have some chance. You can also appear for GMAT in the next one month with a great preparation and then go for R2.

Let's see what other experts have to say.

All the best :)

Hey Dude,

I would also say that Top 15 are out! Focus around 20-30 or retake and get at least a 720.

Dear ykaustubh,
Assuming you are an Indian male, your GMAT will not help you into the top 15; you also have extremely low chances in 15-20. Your WE is on the higher side, and we won't suggest waiting for 1 more year (assuming you can improve your GMAT by 20-30 points). Connect for a free profile evaluation, and we could answer your questions one by one.

Well dude, as an Indian male, if you feel like you could get a higher GMAT score, I would definitely definitely go for it...

Best,
