Hi,

I took the GMAT recently and got a score a score of 690 (Q: 46, V: 38).
While i have started speaking to consultants to start the groundwork for my applications, I'm a bit unsure about my score.
I'm an IT Male, 3 Yearr 7 months work ex (same company) with average acads (10th: 82%, Pre-Univ(12th): 71%, Undergrad: 65%).
I'm targeting Europe as a study destination as it offers a 1-year MBA.

My questions are:

1. Should i retake the GMAT and try to achieve a higher score (as i'm from an over represented pool)?
2. I want to work at least for 2-3 years in the same country where i'll graduate from. UK and US have quite restrictive WP regulations(as i've read). Some of the countries i've shortlisted so far are: Ireland, France, Germany, The Netherlands. Please advice.
3. Would my score and profile be a hindrance to me getting scholarships/Financial aid? I'm from a middle class family and wouldn't be able to afford a very expensive course.

Please advice. I had self prepared for GMAT , without much guidance and now I'm feeling a bit lost about the process, the applications and when are the deadlines. I can use any help/advice i can get.
Thanks

My 2 cents
1. Whether you want to retake or not totally depends on your target schools. So talk to the consultants you are working with and also try to connect with some alums or current students.
2. I hope you are aware that most European countries have language requirements. So to work in a country, you should ideally have some level of proficiency in the language used for business communication. Some firms will excuse this, but most won't. Again, reach out to alms/students to know the requirements.
3. Once again it goes down to the target schools. A high GMAT score is an obvious boost to the chances of a scholarship. That being said, the overall profile matters too. SO if you can tell your story well then the GMAT can be overcome

Cheers and good luck!!!
