Hi there!
I have a question regarding GMAT score. Is there any possibility, that in case of whole portfolio of applicant would be satisfactory, except GMAT score(being very low around 400-500), School still accept the candidate with the condition that He would retake GMAT.

Schools I'm attaining to LSB, INSEAD, IESE,HEC.

Basic Profile information:
GPA 3,62
Work experience 2 years at Ernst and Young Assurance department.
GMAT 470((( Q 44 V17

They won't give you a conditional acceptance pending a higher GMAT score, but you might get put on a waitlist. But I agree you should retake. It is unlikely you would make tthe waitlist cut at your targets unless you bring it up.

Hi again!

Just from GMAT centre. Low score again 550 (V41,Q48). However, there is something I didn't get! Previously I thought having Q and V above 40 is a good score, while I have overall 550! Why is it so? I would appreciate, if someone would explain this! Probably there is something I don't know!

Top schools are looking for a 50 on quant and at least 40 on verbal, which would put someone in the 85-90th percentile. A 40 on each is right around average for quant with a 50th percentile (or close on math and higher on verbal). Quant is more important for b-schools since the curriculum at b-schools is pretty heavy math. Here's a link to help you understand the scoring:
