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 Practicegmat, thanks for your question.

As you know, your verbal score will likely be a challenge in your application. I typically recommend 80+% for top programs, and your 52% is significantly under that. I am not the admissions committee of a top program, but I would think that you’d need exceptional experience and essays to overcome that score. I cannot tell you where to apply, but I think your targets are slightly ambitious.

The larger question is: With your 9.5 years of experience, you are on the older side of applicants to full-time MBA programs. Booth and Wharton tend to be more receptive to older candidates but have you considered executive programs? Your profile might fit better for those, assuming you do not want to change careers.

I hope this helps.

Best of luck,
Brian
