Hi everyone,

I am currently a final year Business undergraduate from Singapore. I have just taken my first GMAT exam this morning and below is my score breakdown:

Q 48 (78%) -- I lost the last 1 second to click the "Yes" button on the last question for quant :(
V 34 (69%)
Overall: 670 (84%)

I would like to seek your opinions on the likeliness of admission to MBA programs in the States with such a GMAT score and current GPA (4.0 out of 5.0).
As I am still in my final semester of my undergraduate studies, I have only 8 months of full-time and on-and-off 1 year of part-time work experience.

What will be examples of my reach, target and safety MBA schools in the States? Also, should I retake the GMAT after graduation?
Prior to today's GMAT, I was thinking of Cornell, Univ of Michigan (Ross) and UC Berkeley..

Any comments and advice will be greatly appreciated! :D

For your target schools, 670 is a little below average. Since you have plenty of time on your side, you should take GMAT again after thorough preparation and get a score of >720 and then apply.
