I'm currently a Project Manager at a non-profit Foundation (we are funders). I'm interested in moving over to a career in Product/Brand Management and am also very interested in getting an MBA to do this. Problem is, my GMAT and GRE scores haven't been very good. I took the GMAT 3 times and the GRE once. Through having some results with better quant scores and other results with better verbal scores my GMAT high score is 550 (I understand this is quite a hindrance). On the GRE I received a 157 in the verbal section and 150 in the quantitative section.

I'm wondering if anyone can suggest MBA programs that I may have a shot at getting into that may help me move into Product Management. MY GPA for undergrad is 2.98. I've been in the workforce for 7 years with a background in project management and political campaign management.

Any suggestions and advice are appreciated.

Hey dude,
So I'll give it to you straight up. With a 550, there aren't any schools worth attending that you can get into. I KNOW you can get higher than that. I would suggest spending the next 3-6 months studying and try again.

Best,

Yeah, that's what I figured. Do you know if admissions look at GRE scores on their own or if they use a converter to translate them into GMAT scores? I've looked at some of the score converters and the GMAT scores they convert to reallllly doc you hard on converting the quant score. It put my percentile way lower than I have ever had on the GMAT.

The schools more or less use the same tables and converters that you do. So if the GRE isn't it, just stick to the GMAT. Given enough study I have full confidence in you!

Best,
