Hi, I'm applying this year (Fall 2019) and wondering what my chances are for admission.

I have taken GMAT a couple of times.

The best score I got is 650 (Q49 V30).

It seems that I'm not really making any progress with my verbal, which is very frustrating.

I have 43 months of work experience as of now.

Most recently, I have spent the last 2 & 1/2 years in pharmaceuticals.

Since I'm in medical department, I don't have any background in marketing, sales, or operation management.

However, I want to switch my career path to marketing with analysis/strategy minor.

Do you think I have strong background to compensate my relatively low GMAT score?

I really don't want to take GMAT again (I will though if I have to) and don't know if I wil do any better next time with verbal.

Help????????

I am no admission expert so can't comment on your admission chances but you should definitely retake and try increase your GMAT score. Avg GMAT of the latest BYU batch is 680; It's always safe to have higher GMAT score than the school's average. It would also increase your chance to get a scholarship. I know couple of Indian applicants with GMAT scores in the range of 700-720 got in to BYU with decent scholarships.

Your quant score is good. You just have to improve your verbal score by 5-6 points to reach 700 level. The tips given in this thread might help.. https://gmatclub.com/forum/how-to-impro ... 42361.html Good luck!

I just submitted my application. Now it's just a waiting game. I think I have a pretty fair chance, though my GMAT and WE are a bit lower than BYU's average. I'm hoping that a 46Q is good enough to justify having an overall score below average.

Anyone know when I can expect to hear back from admissions?

That depends. Are you a member of LDS church.

BYU accepts only 1-1.5% Non LDS. So if you are an LDS, with decent profile and GMAT scores ,you are good.
Please let us know if you hear from the School.
