Hi,

I am a prospective student from Pakistan. According to the GMAC stats, the average GMAT score for my region is 508. That is well below the global average. I have a couple of related questions.

1) Would adcoms mistake us for Indians? Dont get me wrong, we share the same culture and are neighbors but Indian students have REMARKABLY competitive scores! I cant help feeling like we might be considered part of the same candidate pool and be considered sub standard with our scores.

2) I have a 660 GMAT. Would that be considered competitive for my region? Do adcoms take regional differences into consideration?

Yes, schools will consider which "pool" you're from. In fact, the GMAC itself makes it easy for schools to do that by providing country level score data to them (including how well the test taker performed in comparison with other candidates from his or her country).

Finally, although 660 is a good score, you might want to check how well it is likely to work for you (given your profile/target schools) with the experts here.
