Hi Experts,

This was my first attempt at GMAT. Score - 690. I want to understand what are my admission options?


Profile
Nationality - India
Age - 27
Gender - M
Work Experience
- 5+ years in Big 4 (all work experience entirely in big 4). Currently, at Senior Consultant (equivalent to Assistant Manager) position since 2017 (Next position - Manager). The work experience includes 1 year as a management consultant in New York Area, US. Good performance history and multiple awards within firm.
- Strong client portfolio.
- SAP Certified Consultant (if it means anything to MBA assessments)
Volunteer Experience: Organisation team within First International Yoga Day

Other work experience
1) Working on my own online business venture

College
Bachelor's degree - B.Tech (ECE)
GPA: 75%
Extra Curricular - Founded my own internet marketing venture hiring 7+ Philippine freelancers. The business was up and running 2 years. Paid off my college last 2 years with this.
Volunteer - First Indian Grand Prix

School
Scores 10 & 12th : 75-80%
Other Notables:
- Played under 16 level cricket for 3 years. Captain at the state level competition (one year) and represented in other 2.
- Played under 16 Table Tennis & Badminton for 1 year.

Apart from this - Exposure in 8-9 countries in last 2 years which include experiences such as Sky Diving, the Great Alaskan adventure etc.

I am looking for guidance in the following areas:

1) My current possible options given my profile and score?
2) How much impact on my possible options with let's say a 720+ score.

Please let me know if you need any further information.

Thank you.

Regards

Hi Shiva,
1. A reasonable ballpark with a 690 GMAT score will be beyond the top 20 b-schools. Its competitive for Indians and the GMAT ask is higher from them as compared to other applicants.
2. A 30+ increase will definitely up your game. You have good work experience otherwise, and if retaking the GMAT will give you the chance to apply to better-ranked programs, then why not!
