I have targeted only Canadian Universities for a 2 years MBA 2018-2020.

Now because of my lower score in GMAT, I am confuse whether should I retake GMAT by December 2018 end or should I start with my application process, banking on my Profile?

MY TARGET WAS/IS

1. GMAT Score 650
2. COLLEGES TARGETED - ROTMAN, DESAUTELS, SAUDER, SCHULICH, DEGROOTE, HEC MONTREAL FOR 2 YEARS MBA DEGREE

CURRENT SITUATION

FIRST GMAT SCORE 570 (Q48, V21)(taken on 27th September 2017) SO MISSED ROUND 1 OF APPLICATION.
SECOND GMAT SCORE 610 (Q48, V25) (taken on 27th November 2017)

MY PROFILE

MECHANICAL ENGINEER 2003-2007 BATCH
MBA - MARKETING 2008-2010 BATCH (FROM AN AVERAGE COLLEGE)
TOTAL WORK EXPERIENCE - 7.5 YEARS IN B2B SALES & MARKETING OF AUTOMOBILE COMPONENTS POST MBA

Well a 650 is a bit borderline for some of your schools. The place to start is with the average GMAT, if as an Indian applicant your GMAT is less than 20/30 points over the average, it will be a struggle.

Obviously there are many other elements, like your work experience and so on that play an equally if not more important role.

Feel free to write more in detail about your background,
Best,

I would say improve your score by several notches to have a realistic shot. Also brace yourself up for giving strong reason for an MBA at this (late) stage of your career and a second MBA.
