Dear team,

it would be great if I could receive some advice/ an assessment of my upcoming B-School application:

Nationality: Western European/ US-American
Degree: Undergrad in Business (Top 5% at average/ good state university) and Exchange at Ivy in the US, Masters in Management (First/ Top 15-20% Oxbridge) incl. merit-based scholarships
GMAT: 690 (Q: 44 / V: 41 / IR: 8) - weak Quant; retake worth it if e.g., only 47 expected?
Work Experience: 2 Years MBB in Europe and further abroad, several internships in consulting and at Volkswagen
Extracurricular: Several activities before and during studies (e.g., Class President, Politics); currently minimal
Post-MBA goal: Consulting, PE

Schools:
Harvard
Wharton
Chicago
MIT
Insead

It would be great to get some advice on chances at these schools and the necessity of a GMAT retake.

Thank you very much!

Hi Peter123456789,

Thank you for your post. If you're interested in top programs, then retaking the GMAT is definitely a necessity. You've got nice undergrad results and a strong name on your resume with MBB, but you're otherwise applying from an overrepresented demographic with a GMAT score that is considerably behind the curve for the programs you've listed (a little less so for INSEAD) and with little in the way of involvement, leadership, or differentiation outside of work.

740+ would be a nice, aspirational target for the programs you've listed. You might also consider whether it would pay to apply next year. Applying with two years of experience to enroll with three is lower-end of the spectrum for most programs; others you're competing with will have more advancement, impact, and leadership to show; it would give you proper time to really nail the GMAT; and it would give you time to build your leadership and involvement outside of work.

You should also be sure to develop your story and career goals. You can read more about that here: https://www.avantiprep.com/blog/the-mos ... on-process

Happy to elaborate. Please feel free to sign up for a Free Consultation via this link (or below): https://www.avantiprep.com/free-consultation.html

Best Regards,
Greg
