I've failed the GMAT 3 times and wanted to know whether to do it again. I know the schools get the full list of GMAT scores so will a 4th GMAT can make my admission impossible?
my work experience is a big plus, especially for an technological oriented schools (Stanford, MIT, Kellogg etc...) but my GMAT is low.

I'm a B.Sc in Mechanical Engineering with 4 years experience in my field.

My GMAT scores:

No. Total Q V
01 500 -- --

02 610 47 28

03 600 36 36

Should I do a 4th GMAT or Should I try to get accepted without a 4th GMAT? From your experience, what are my chances? (Kellog, MIT, cornell)

Thanks in advance, Guy

Unless you are an Underrepresented Minority (African-, Hispanic- or Native American) you can't get into the schools you listed with a 600. Even if you were a "UM" you would have to have a lot of really strong material elsewhere in your app to get into those schools (though Cornell is a lot more doable than the others). Much more I can't say because you didn't provide much info. Keep in mind that schools often tell applicants that they don't mind 3 GMAT attempts but more than that seems pointless. If you are not a "UM" you will need a score in the high 600s minimum.

Good luck,
