Hi,
I gave my GMAT yesterday and scored a disappointing 680(q47, v 37).
I need suggestions for colleges to apply to and would be very grateful for your honest replies.
Background: Marine Engineer, from top Indian University, BITS Pilani. CGPA: 9.4/10
Work Ex: 3.5 years now. Working with a great company involved in Risk Management and Certification and classification of Ships.
I want to enroll in a Operations/Logistics/Shipping kind of an MBA.
My ideal colleges would be: INSEAD, HKUST, ISB, NUS and NTU in that order.
Can anyone suggest what are my realistic chances with my score and bacground. I am aware that application, reference, essays etc play a very important part, but i want to know whether my score itself doesnt give me a disadvantage even before i begin my application to these universities.

Well first of all is that a 680 is a pretty good score. The big question is: is it worthwhile to retake? And the answer is: if you have been mock scoring 30 or more points higher, YES! The difference between a 680 and a 710 is BIG (much bigger than the difference between 710 and 740), and you have the time so do it.

Buuut, even if you DON'T get higher, I feel you still can apply to the schools you listed (it will only be a bit harder). You work in an industry that is not all that common amongst MBA applicants, and I feel you can use that to your advantage to tell a unique and compelling story. Plus your excellent GPA will cover any doubts about you from an academic/intellectual perspective.

Hope this helps,
