So i would like to know wat kind of colleges can i be getting for this mark and profile though i will be re-writing the GMAT on Dec 2012 :? :? . Plz provide me so that I can apply to 1 or 2 colleges for my backup plan.

Thank you.. :-D :-D :-D

Hi Santosh,

Thank you for sharing your profile. I'm sorry to hear about the GMAT score.

Your professional experience is quite good, but your undergrad GPA and GMAT are quite low (as you know). I also don't see any post-college extracurricular or community leadership activities. I would say that if you could really bring up your GMAT score, you'd have a chance at a decent program. With your current profile, however, I'd say that you'd have to look at Tier 2 programs and below. As for which programs, this depends greatly upon your goals and what you are looking for from an MBA program.

I wish you the best of luck on the GMAT!
