Hello!

I took GMAT today and scored 610 (Q51, V20). I scored in the range of 28-35 in verbal section in the various mock tests that i took. But in GMAT, I could hardly score 20.
I have a work-ex of more than 4 years in Manufacturing Industry. Can somebody guide me if I should start applying in universities or give it another attempt?
I want to know one more thing here: do I stand a chance to get admission in a good university with this score?

Thanks!

Depends on how you define 'a good university'. If you are talking about the top 20, I would advice you to give GMAT another shot. A 650+ and balanced scores in Quant and Verbal are more comfortable to them. Q51 and V20 is quite skewed. To improve your chances, try to bring the verbal score up to 35.

Yeah exactly! the score is quite unbalanced. and the score of 20 in verbal makes me feel like jumping off the cliff.
i was talking about top 50 universities in my previous post. Do these 'top 20' universities really consider applications of 650+ scores?
I always thought they take candidates with scores of 700+ only!

On average, the top 20 have a class average of 710-720. Obviously, they have quite a few 760+ scorers. Had they been focusing only on 700+ people, their average would have been much higher. A 670 has a fair shot too with a brilliant app. But yes, below 650, the chances reduce significantly. I have heard of 590 in the top 5 too but they are truly exceptional cases.
