Hi Team,

I am 28yrs old, Indian male. Mechanical engineering from IIT. GPA: 7/10

In a bit of confusion. I had a GMAT score of 710 ( q:50 v:36) . Took this test in 2010. I appeared for it again 2 days back and stupidly scored 660 (foolishness).

Working in one of the largest Oil&Gas service company since 7 years on international/expat assignment. Worked in Asia, Middle East, US, Africa and UK till now. Enough leadership and international experience in every location.

The only schools I was targeting were Harvard , MIT and INSEAD, however with this screw up with GMAT, I am bit disappointed.

I have quick questions: Will they consider ONLY the higher score (710). Even in that the verbal % is in 50s , is it realistic to get into Harvard/MIT with strong apps ?

You have to be realistic when you are applying to schools of this caliber -- which truly attract the best students in the world. Also, you have to be realistic about your chances -- and given your demographic, the overall acceptance rate for candidates like you is about half the stated overall acceptance rate. Thus, it will be challenging to gain admissions to programs as competitive as HBS and Sloan with a verbal GMAT score so low, even with great applications. I strongly recommend that you retake the exam -- and then invest in developing extremely strong applications.

Good luck.
