Hi Experts

I have applied to ISB through the YLP program and cleared the first stage. I am preparing for the GMAT now, which is required for the second stage. The deadline for the second stage is 31st August and so I have decided to take the test a week before the deadline i.e 24th August. I had started my preparation in March, but due to work and semester end exams I couldn't dedicate enough time for the preparation. My baseline score was just 400. Now, 2 weeks back, after almost a month of dedicated preparation my score was 540 (MGMAT Mock). I haven't taken any other test since then. From my score, I have observed that my Quant section is not going good and I have been working on it since then. Verbal scores are also not very good, but slightly above average and I feel I can get above V40 in the official test.

Now as I have only 3 weeks in hand for the test, I am not quite sure if I can make it to the 700+ level. As there won't be any chance for me to take a test later, because the deadline is 31st August for stage 2 of ISB, I am also thinking to reschedule the test and forgo the opportunity for ISB.

But if I do that, I don't know which are other good B-Schools that offer similar education like ISB. Also, I don't have any full time work experience, I have worked part-time for the entire undergraduate duration.

If anyone could help me regarding this decision and suggest some good B-schools, in case ISB doesn't works out for me.
Even if I'm writing on the scheduled date, I need to submit my scores to 4 other schools other than ISB.

So what could be some good options for my profile?

Thanks!

I think you should take the exam so that you can apply now. You can always take the exam again later if YLP doesn't happen.

On the other hand, if you want to take the exam only once, you should take an official practice test soon, and take a call on the basis of that score.

Hi AjiteshArun
Thanks for your response.

In case, I am taking the test on the scheduled date, I'll have to send my scores to 4 other schools right? In that case, which schools would be some good options to consider in T-50?

You can choose up to 5 programs on test day, so if you are not sure which ones you want to apply to, you can choose to send your score only to YLP.

Of course, it'd be better if you marked 5 programs, but program selection is usually not as straightforward as just picking some good programs from the top 50 (there are a lot of good programs in that set).

Hi ArbaazRajani,

I agree that it would be helpful to take an official practice exam ASAP to get an updated baseline score. Once you do so, please report back here with your score breakdown, and I can provide some further advice.
