Hello yash321,

Thanks for writing in.

ISB evaluates profiles in a holistic manner and while the GMAT is only one component of the entire applications process, it is an extremely crucial one.

A 650 on GMAT is much below the average at ISB and your chances of getting an interview call with this score are particularly bleak, even more so, because you belong to an over-represented pool of applicants with an IT background. Hence, we strongly recommend a retake. Additionally, you must aim for a score upwards of 720 to stand a realistic chance :-)

Of course, besides the GMAT, your overall application too needs to be strong. However, for now, you must focus all your energies on boosting your GMAT score! :-)

All the best!

The response above is right. While it is possible for you to make it with a 650, it'll be tough unless the rest of your application is really strong. That is, there has to be enough there to offset a lower than average (for the school) GMAT score.

Hi yash321,

While a 650 is a strong score (it's just a bit shy of the 80th percentile overall), not all 650s are 'equal.' Many Business Schools view an Applicant's Quant Scaled Score as an indicator of how that Applicant might handle the 'academic side' of the Program, so a 650 with a higher Quant Scaled Score might be viewed as 'better' than one with a higher Verbal Scaled Score.

You're ultimately asking Admissions questions though, so you would likely find it beneficial to speak with an Admissions Expert about your overall profile. There's a Forum full of those Experts here (and you'll have to provide far more information on your Overall profile):

http://gmatclub.com/forum/ask-admission ... tants-124/

If you choose to retest, then we have to examine how you've been studying. Once you've decided on whether to retest or not, you should post back here (or you can PM me directly) and we can talk through your study options going forward.
