I just took the GMAT and scored a 700 (44Q 41V) and I don't know if I should retake it. I took it a second time without studying much more and I scored 590 which was pretty disappointing. I want to apply to HBS, Stanford, Wharton, Northwestern, Booth, and Columbia. Could you please tell me your opinion on my chances on each of these?

Undergrad: Notre Dame (Double Major: Finance and History) 3.52 GPA
GMAT: 700 (44Q 41V) - 93% Verbal and 63% Quant, 6 AWA, 7 IR
Work Experience: Doing Investment Banking at Citi. Don't know how long until doing MBA but at least 2-3 years in the program.
Other Activities: Planning on taking CFA Level 1, have led a small fund with high school friends and we have achieved competitive results, skiing, a lot of traveling.

I have also had internships along the years 3 in a Panamanian commercial bank, 1 in a real estate development fund in Panama, 1 in a private wealth management firm in Miami.

I am from Panama and speak 4 languages, I spent two summers in Switzerland and one in Italy before going to college.

Fluent in Spanish
Fluent in English
Conversant in French
Basic Italian

Please let me know your outlook on this. Thank you for your help.

Hi there,

Sounds like you are researching everything early, to apply in a few years (?), which is great. If it is possible at all, I would probably recommend taking the GMAT once more and especially focusing on bringing up the quant side, when you are talking about the top-ranked MBA programs. ;) Schools will take the highest score, and in the 60's percentile-wise for quant is less ideal (plus if you brought that up, your overall would go up too). Especially if you have time and can invest in a prep program. Otherwise your nationality and international experiences will help you stand out from the crowd, so you'll want to emphasize what you learned and gained from those experiences, as well as any leadership experiences and accomplishments and results within your professional roles.

Good luck on the process !
