Hello!

I am not an expert but I think that it depends on your ambition. Your score is good, but ideally, you need above 700 to get into top schools. I would suggest you try getting a higher verbal score if you can retake the GMAT. Alternatively, you can apply to b-schools with lower rankings that are not as demanding in terms of the GMAT. All in all, I wish you good luck! :-) :-)

Hi
In my opinion, you should try to improve your Gmat score and then apply for colleges.
ISB/IIMs generally require a score of 700+. Although it also depends on your profile.
Still, it will be beneficial if you can score a 700+.

Hi ishantheiitian

If you are not keen on studying in India, your score is pretty much in the 80th percentile
of most tier 2 Canadian programs. Some of the programs which may be interested
are as follows:

1. DeGroote
2. Ryerson (Ted Rogers)
3. John Molson (Concordia)
4. Lazaridis (Laurier)
5. Tefler (Ottawa)
6. Haskayne (Calgary)
7. Alberta School of Business

You would have to do some work work on shortlisting other schools based on
your interest. Also, you will have to apply to the schools as quickly as possible,
because quite a few of these schools have rolling deadlines for international
applicants.

Hope this helps you!

Congrats on finishing and getting a strong quant score!

What school did you study at?
What company do you work at and what is your role?
Do you have extra-curricular leadership activities?

These will all be important in recommending some schools.

Give us some more information and we can help!

Here are some things you can do now to plan ahead as well. https://www.personalmbacoach.com/blog

Best,
Scott

Hi ishantheiitian,

Most of the top tier schools will look for a score upwards of 700. Hence, it is recommended that you retake the GMAT. The quant score is great and some work on your verbal section will help you boost your score :) Therefore, you must give this a try.

Nonetheless, should you choose to go ahead with 640, the shortlisting will depend on various factors ranging from geography to career goals. You may get in touch with us for a more detailed evaluation in this regard.

All the best!
