That's a good score, but for profile related questions you might want to check here as well.

Hi Experts,

After going through the past 15-20 days to search for good B schools, i realise now that it's very difficult to get a good B school with score of 650, atleast a 700 is must to get in top 25.
Many consultants share college according to my profile but i feel it's only for name sake nothing as such good.

I am in a bit of dillemma as wht to do either to improve upon my score or go with this , as my age is hovering around 32 next yr i will be 33 next yr (2018) with 7 yrs of work ex , this was my 5th attempt with GMAT and since last 2 yrs i have not been working ( because of an accident i have to leave the job, bt i am totally ok now), so are all these factors going to be a negative factor in my profile and what should i do now. I am scoring heavily in the practice tests (Q51 almost 35 questions correct and V - 40+) but somehow every time i am faltering in main exam,what should i do with this as i am not seeing any positives but only negatives with my profile.

Need an expert advice to get ahead , can someone help me with these and many other questions related.

Thanks

It's good to have a strong GMAT score. However, I feel that you should not focus exclusively on the top 25 schools unless you're absolutely sure that nothing else makes sense from a personal/career perspective. There are a lot of schools that could be good for you. For example, while I usually ask students to target the best schools they can, some of them decide to target a lower ranked (25-50) school. They focus on getting scholarships and on graduating at or close to the top of their class. The outcomes are quite encouraging. While this is from a very limited sample, I really feel that you shouldn't let a sub 700 score stop you from pursuing your next degree. Management education is not exclusively for the top 12% of all people taking the GMAT.

Thanks a lot for these words, but literally confused on schools i should consider, the schools with these marks in range have placement issues or the course as such is not good (Finance), meanwhile i have not given up yet on GMAT.
But i want to give it a shot with this score, don't know what may happen.

Any good Finance b school you can suggest which have good placements too, not eager for cntry, bt for the B school and especially finance as the area of study.

Thanks
