Dear Vantage Point,

I would really appreciate some advice on whether I should retake or spend my time otherwise. My profile is as follows:

GMAT: 1st take, 740, Q50, V40, AWA 4, IR 7
Work experience: Business Analyst at tier 1 consulting firm, investment banking internship at tier 2 bank
GPA: top 10%, undergrad from a European university
Extracurriculars: board member in an organisation offering creative afterschool activities for kids in impoverished areas of my city; mentor for a young socially vulnerable girl
Other: bilingual (I'm an Asian who grew up in Europe)

I plan to apply in R1 2018, since my work contract is only for 2 years. I want to get into a top 5 school because I won't be sponsored otherwise.

Any advice would be appreciated!

Congratulations for a good score ie 740
740 is really a good score and as far as reattempt is concerned => i think you must prepare good profile and forget about GMAT score part.
so build a solid profile so that your dream school will pick you...

Thanks for reaching out to us! We're happy to help you start your MBA journey. However, we are in the process of relaunching our forum with a new format and will not be able to respond to requests until that process is completed. We will no longer be providing straight profile reviews because at the end of the day, your competitiveness at different schools relies on more than just a few stats or data points; we think a conversation is a much better way to provide that feedback and help you think through your strengths and development areas. We provide a free 30 minute consultation for that reason. As such, our new forum will focus more on the specific and burning questions that you may have for our expert team that can help you as well as others who are reading these posts. More detail to come.

If you reached out for the 2017-2018 application season and we did not get to your question, we sincerely apologize. Due to overwhelming demand, we reached full capacity and completely sold-out well in advance of the deadlines and stopped taking new consultations or profile evaluation requests so that we could focus on ensuring that our clients had the best possible support during the process. We're hopeful that your questions were answered elsewhere on the site, and we wish you best of luck for application success!

Kindly,
The Vantage Point MBA Team
