I just finished with my GMAT ((Q48,V36))...quite dissapointed...but never the less...heres my background..
Education: Computer Engineer (66%..GPA around 3.5 to 3.6)
- Work Ex - Will Complete 5 years in an other 4 months.. >First 18 months with an IT company... >Next: Career Change..Big RISK...Paid off well...Currently working as an Assistant Manager with a small-sized research and consulting company for the past three years. -My AIM: I want to be a full time management consultant!!
My Target B schools...Asian (ISB, NUS, Nanyang) and European (Insead, HEC, LBS...)
My Doubts: Is my GMAT score (considering my target schools) enough or should i give it again...from what I understand, consulting companies seek high GMAT scorers at the time for placements.
Key Strengths: Good Work Ex ( Have been as they say a 'Star performer', Employee of the Year Award and two Quick Promotions in two years, post my big career change)
Key Weaknesses: Average GMAT score and an Average Udergraduate Degree.
Kindly let me know your views guys...am DESPERATE!!!

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but INSEAD and LBS are going to be a big stretch. You should be competitive for HEC though. MGT consulting firms : Mckinsey, BCG, Bain and the like, do screen out candidates based on their GMAT scores and they usually prefer students with higher scores, around the top 10 % for a given school. I am not sure if this applies to europe, in the US typically MGT consulting firms screen candidates based on their undergrad GPA as well. You'll better off with a higher GMAT score of around 720 +
