Hi Team,

I am a B.tech 2013 graduate with a work experience of 4 yrs in an MNC in India. Currently, I am in USA and I am planning to apply for some good B-schools with my Gmat score 550 (QA- 42, VA-24). i gave the exam in the starting of this month. Please suggest what are my chances in this regard?. I am open to pursue MBA either in India or abroad. Also, whether I should give GRE once and see if I can get some good university opportunities. Please provide your valuable suggestions.

10th- 87.6%
12th-83.4%
B.tech- (Electronics & Communication, 2013)- 8.1 CGPA
4 years of work experience in SAP ABAP technology

Thanks
Nikita

Hi Nikita,

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; 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.

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,

Hi Nikita,

Welcome to GMATClub!

First thing first, there is a B-School open for every GMAT score and profile that one
can have. If your intention is to only go to a business school, believe me, you are all
set. But the whole point of doing a second degree is to do it in a school of repute.
For you to get into a decent B-School, the GMAT score of 550 is not going to be
enough(considering the tough demographic)

If I were you, I would GMAT another shot or give the GRE a shot when I feel I have
given the exam to the best of my abilities. It could take 2-3 months while you do so,
But if you intend to apply as it is, you could look at some of tier 2 Canadian B-Schools
which offer an excellent ROI. If you apply early in the cycle, you might have a decent
shot at some of these schools. That said, a better GMAT/GRE score will help you with
a small scholarship at least.

Hope this helps you!
