Hello,

I just completed my third GMAT, and to my dismay it was only a mere 640.

Although I want to improve, I wanted to apply this year and round 2 is coming up in January.

Should I still apply in case I get in? I'm wondering if I don't get accepted, if that will affect my chances when I reapply the following year.

Target schools are NYU/UCLA.

Advice appreciated.

Thanks,
Tony

Hi there,

Given how competitive the process is, it's always best to apply when you can put your best foot forward. But, in general, reapplying is not considered to be negative; for reapplicants, schools typically want to understand how you have grown since you last applied and then will evaluate you against the current pool of candidates. Hope this helps!

Best,
Shaifali

Hi Tony, I'm sorry to hear of your disappointment. I do feel that you should delay your application this year and focus on getting the GMAT sorted. i realized you have taken it 3 times - mix up your strategy. Do something different to get a different result. Get a tutor or join an online study group.
Might consider checking out how you fare on the GRE. I believe for those two schools the GRE average is not publicized or factored into rankings; this means that if they want you it might be less of an obstacle. So take a mock exam there and if the quant is high enough, go for it.
The schools want to see that you have grown and in than a year - well might be difficult to demonstrate unless you have some big promotion coming up next year. I would just prioritize the test score for the time being and apply to round 1 next season. If you get the test score situated by the end of the year, maybe apply to round 1 INSEAD for J-term in Feb if that appeals.
