Hi,
I took the GMAT today and ended up with a score of 660 ( Q50, V29). My target was 700+, but Verbal betrayed me!
Well, I don't think there is anytime for me to re-take the GMAT , as I want to apply for round 2 for Fall 2012 (Because if I take the GMAT again, then I will fall in the pool of students for round 3, which I guess might be risky).

My Profile : I am from India,and I have a total of 9.5 years of experience in Software industry working as Software Engineer/Lead.
GPA : 3.2

I would like apply for schools like Booth, Tuck, Kellogg,Columbia. I know that I am sounding much optimistic, but would like to have your advice whether it would be a correct decision to go ahead and apply in these schools.
I am from India,and I have a total of 9.5 years of experience in Software industry working as Software Engineer/Lead.

Please advice. Also if possible, could you please send me a list of good Universities where I can apply with this score?I am open to Canada, Singapore, and if needed, European countries as well

Thanks !

Hello sir!
Not to be the bearer of bad news, but sometimes we gotta roll up our sleeves and stare reality down in the eyes!
With a 660 and your background the schools you listed are gonna be a long shot, so we either retake the GMAT or compromise a bit on the schools.

Hey Arzad,
Well first of all, as a Hispanic American candidate with good community service, you could definitely look into applying through the Consortium: http://www.cgsm.org/

Secondly, there are plenty of great Real Estate programs out there. I would start looking into the following schools:
Columbia (maybe a bit of a stretch here, but great Real Estate program)
McCombs
Johnson
Marshall
UNC
Wisconsin

Check these out, do a bit of research, chat with students from the schools and get back to us!
cheers,
