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 tonyjyoo

Thanks for your query.

Your current GMAT score is much below the average GMAT score indicated by the schools in question. Hence, we strongly recommend that you work towards improving your score before applying. Now, to answer your question, success at the time of reapplication depends on how well you were able to identify and address the gaps that were present in your application in the previous year. The gap could be due to many reasons - low GMAT score, weak essays, lack of fit etc. Hence, if you are able to work towards plugging the gap, you will have high chances of success.

For now, we strongly recommend that you focus on your GMAT and apply with a stronger score

:)

All the best!

I would say when reapplying their is an onus or an expectation that your application will improve in some way from the prior year. Considering you have already been dinged if you submitted the same exact application you probably get dinged again, so that is what makes reapplying a challenging ordeal. So make sure you are putting your best foot forward when you do apply. This is why many schools ask you why right now is the ideal time for you to apply, they want to make sure you have thought through the pros and cons of applying to school, which includes what is included in your application package. With your score and given the schools you are targeting, I would save yourself the time and just retake the GMAT and try and get a score closer to the averages at your target schools, because right now your GMAT is low.
