I got 690 in GMAT. Score breakdown is Q50 V34. I got 7 in IR. I am an engineer and have 3 years of industrial work experience in one of India's largest private company. I am involved in the commissioning of world's largest petrochemical project. My GPA is 8.96/10 (It is based on 10 point scale). Please suggest which colleges I can apply. Also suggest if I should try to improve score to more than 720 or I should apply with my existing score.

Hi kaushik.kashyap26@gmail.com,

If you are planning to reappear for the GMAT, you can increase your score by drilling down deep.

SC: The questions test various concepts such as S-V agreement, modifiers, parallelism etc. Find out what troubles you.
As a general guide line, you can start solving a question by taking the following things in consideration:

1. Find out the subject and the verb
2. See that the S&V agree in number
3. Look out for the modifiers
4. Look out for parallelism
5. Look out for usage of certain words - such as vs like, few vs less etc.

CR: There might be certain types of questions that are troubling you. May be Assumption, may be conclusion, inference etc.
You need to find that out and then practice them
RC: This again can be drilled down into different types of questions and also different topics. See what questions and topics trouble you the most and then practice accordingly.
Quants: Again try to break the questions in topics such as Algebra, Number system (very important), Geometry, PnC etc.

You can get a profile overview on the Consultants section of GMAT Club.

Actually you should take it the other way round. Decide what you want to do after MBA or why do you want to pursue MBA and then look for suitable schools. 690 is a good score and almost every school admits students close to this score. So, it is rather a matter of your preference. For instance, 690 for an Indian is generally not sufficient for M7 schools, while it may be sufficient for Kelly.
