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.

Hello vibsa, thanks for your question.

For top programs, I typically recommend an overall GMAT score of 700+, with verbal and quantitative scores of 80%+. You’re not that far off!

Of course, as you are probably already aware, you come from a highly demographic in the MBA applicant pool. So, your score might be a slight challenge when applying to a program like INSEAD, say, given whom you are competing against.

Let me say, though, that your quants (GMAT, GPA) open the door at programs; it is your essays, experience that will actually get you in. Ultimately, your competitiveness will come down to the quality of your leadership experience in and out of work. Can you draw upon “moments” when you truly led: influenced individuals and organizations, drove results, took initiative?

Best of luck,
Brian
