Alex,

I took the GMAT yesterday and scored a 690 (Q46,V39). Needless to say, I'm a bit disappointed by my verbal, but the quant was in line with practice tests. I don't think it is worth retaking, but open to the idea. Will this keep me out of Wharton + Columbia or perhaps Tuck? The exit opps at lower ranked schools doesn't justify the cost. If you honestly think I have no chance, I think I'm a solid candidate for a part-time program at Booth or Kellogg. I really want to go back full-time, but think I may have killed the chance with my poor GMAT showing. I think I have solid work experience which I can convey in my apps and resume.

Your GMAT score is on the margins - and with your overall profile being right in the middle, it's not impossible or a long shot for your target schools, but you'll take a bit of luck. I'd say go for it anyways, and look at Kellogg/Booth part-time as well.

Do the best you can on the applications. Not much else you can do in your real life in a few months that will change your candidacy.
