Why the rush? Keep retaking it until you get a better score. Time is your friend here, not your enemy.

Hi AtHomeMBA2005,

I don't want to miss out on this round of applications and wait until next year, I want to apply regardless.
McMaster does conditionally accept applicants if they like their application, and will ask them to rewrite the GMAT.

Why do you want to do your mba now? If it is only because the company is paying, I do not suggest going there.

You are young, don't have management experience, and I think a part time mba is a waste of time for you *right now*

You only get one chance at an mba, don't do it for the sake of doing it now. Wait, study for your gmat, and do it when the time is right. The biggest benefit to the degree is the first job right afterwards. If you pursue this part time program and don't get a promotion (a large one) at your company which you are likely obligated to stay at, it is almost all for naught.

I don't want to be harsh, but it a lot of time and money that you'd be putting on the line. Make sure you are doing it for the right reasons

If you absolutely insist on applying, just do it. There isn't really anything you can do besides improving your gmat in this time frame. Part time programs take almost all applicants as long as their application makes sense

edit. Ivey is relatively close to you. kill it at the sales job, get another 100-120 points on your gmat, and you are a solid candidate there, at a much better school. Even though it is full time, I think this will hold a lot more value to your career than going to a part time program without years of management experience

Hi cxa0897

Thank you for your input, but like I mentioned I will be applying regardless. To apply to attend another school would be difficult and I believe McMaster is still a reputable university, even though it is not top 5 in Canada. I don't want my MBA so I can leave my current company, it is a very good place to work (in Canada's top 100 employers). I would have to stay with them for a number a years after graduating from my MBA regardless.

The other universities are over an hour commute into a downtown busy city (forced to use public transit). It would be difficult and strenuous to try to work full-time and commute to go to school. It would be extremely stressful to balance it with work and home life.

In that case there is really nothing you can do but apply. If you do decide to retake the test and score better, all it takes is an email with the scan of your new score to give them up an update.

If you get rejected, study and reapply next year. The gmat is very learnable, and if you invest the time you should do far better than your prior tests
