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 global 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 ?

Hi there,

The schools will take the highest score, yes. A 710 is just on the border of being generally 'acceptable' for the top-rated programs, i.e. you're close to their average score. So the decision will be based on the rest of your application. You'll need to make sure you really highlight those leadership and management experiences, and show in your application essays what makes you unique and what you'll bring to the class; why you want the MBA and what your short and long term post-MBA goals are; and why that school is right for you. Good luck on those applications!
