Is it worth applying to a B-school with a low GMAT score of 600? If yes, which are the schools where one should apply to? If no, what would be the suggested strategies to improve score?

Hi shubhamsen91 ,

Your username suggests you are an Indian Male. (May be IT?)

I would strongly recommend not to apply to any of the bschools with this score because there won't be any ROI.

I would say try to get a higher score before you actually apply anywhere.

Inorder to improve your score, try to understand your weak areas and then maybe join some good online courses to get the basic knowledge.

Working on your mistakes can really help you get a great score.

All the best. :)

Depends on your profile and objectives. If you have a truly amazing profile, even the best schools will be willing to overlook your 600. Similarly, if you're not from a very competitive pool of candidates, a 600 could work at some of the lower ranked schools. Trying for a better score is a good idea though. Just remember to keep on trying to improve your overall application also.

It's a good idea to get better grades ,the factors involved are too broad, the better grades, of course, come from high education and personal performance

Hi shubhamsen91,

The process of applying to (and ultimately attending) Business School will require a big investment of time, money and energy on your part, so you really should make sure that the Programs that you apply to match your career goals/needs. There are a variety of factors that go into selecting the Schools that you'll apply to. Instead of just applying to Programs in which you might have a good chance to 'get in', here are some other things to think about:

1) Is there a particular company that you want to work for or industry that you want to work in? Certain degrees are more appropriate than others if you have a specific career goal.
2) What do you want your MBA to do for you?
3) Do you want to go to School full-time or part-time?
4) Are you willing to relocate? Are you comfortable with working through a program that is primarily online?
5) Are you going to be applying for scholarships?
Etc.

It's okay if you don't have answers to any of these questions just yet, but you really should try to define all of the important variables in terms of your goals, so that you can tailor your entire approach to getting into the best School that matches what you're looking for. In that same way, once you know the type of GMAT Score that you would need to be a competitive applicant at the Schools that interest you, you'll have a better idea of whether you should retake the GMAT or not.
