Hi Guys

I have given GMAT and scored a 620 (Q47 V28 IR6).

Since I have crossed the minimum required score for ISB (The only school i plan to apply), I want to give a shot to R1 rounds. I needed your feedback on the following:

1) If this would be right thing to do. Would this score be even considered even though the website says that minimum required is 600
2) What are the chances with such a score to get through
3) Any other good schools to look for with this score
4) How should the ISB application be, as in what is it that they look for in a competing application if score is not up to the mark
5) Any assistance on application from anyone who is applying to ISB this year/anyone who would want to share his/her experience and feedback, would be happy to receive

Thanks
Angel

1) If this would be right thing to do. Would this score be even considered even though the website says that minimum required is 600 - Even though the website says 600 is the minimum the average at ISB is around 700. 620 is not going to be enough, unless you have a couple of aces up your sleev, which would make you really attractive to ISB, so much so that they would be willing to blink at your GMAT score. Keep in mind that ISB weighs the GMAT quote heavily.

2) What are the chances with such a score to get through - As I mention above, chances are slim to none if you do not have an amazing and mindboggling profile, education and extracurriculars. Why take a chance, if you are really set on ISB, study hard for the GMAT and crack it to show your love. Do have a look at the applicant pool (only representative) here. This will help you get some understanding of where you stand.

3) Any other good schools to look for with this score - There are schools that will accept this score for granting admissions. You need to do more research and know what your expectations are from an MBA program. First define "good".

4) How should the ISB application be, as in what is it that they look for in a competing application if score is not up to the mark and
5) Any assistance on application from anyone who is applying to ISB this year/anyone who would want to share his/her experience and feedback, would be happy to receive
- Check out the Thread for ISB. You will be able to find out a lot more on the answers you seek.

All the best

Hi there,

1. Websites says that 600, but if you have the GMAT range of 600-650 score. Your profile should be extra -ordinary like International player.
2. Should be 700+
3. Yes, you can apply for Manheim business school, Vlerick Business School, University of Cincinnati, Beedie School of Business- Simon Fraser University and so forth..

You may also try B-school selector tool https://goo.gl/T4Hsgf to gauge your chances for top B-schools.

Regards,
Shoaib
