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

Manish

It depends on what schools you are targeting, the best score is the score that will get you in, if you are seeking scholarships then the higher the score the better, the more elite your profile seems to your competition the better your odds are for scholarships
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.
This logic is sound
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.
See above, this will really depend on the schools, follow guidance above

Thanks for the reply. It sure solved some doubts i had.

So far I've been able to shortlist just 1 b school which is UCD smurfit. The fee structure and the scholarship chances suits me and I've started work on the Essays.
Could you advice some b schools which i can target given the requirements i mentioned in the previous post. I'm currently looking into Vlerick and Cass.

Also i researched b schools in France and Germany. Both countries would require me to have business level fluency in French and German, which i doubt can be achieved within a year as the curriculum and the course would be entirely in English.
