Hello All

I've been planning to do my MBA starting next fall. I would like to have a feedback on my profile from folks here on the forum. Look forward to some interesting insights. :-D

I have taken my GMAT. Scores are as follows.

Q 46
V 34
Total: 650

How good is my GMAT Score for top end universities? Do I need to retake? If yes, what should I be aiming at? My dream universities are indeed Stanford, HBS, MIT, Haas and Cornell. However, I am more or less okay with anything that is in top 50 in the US.

Thank you all in advance for your valuable feedback.

Cheers

Yeshu

Hi Yeshu, I'm afraid that yes I would recommend you retake the exam.

Please keep in mind for the top schools, don't think about do I have to or can I get away with not. The mindset should be, doing absolutely everything in your power to improve your profile.

If you were to be competing in the Olympics you would not be asking yourself Should I stick to a good diet or do some training today.

You would do everything in your power. And this is absolutely the same situation.

The acceptance rates for all of the top schools are 25% or less and keep in mind that the 75%+ rejected or are not directionless losers. They are good. You have to be better.

If you were Indian, which I'm gathering you are, the pressure is even more intense unfortunately. Take a look at the middle 80% range for your Target schools, and then tack on another 20 points. Unfortunately this is what you get for coming from a super smart ethnicity. This will be the same situation if you are Chinese. If you're under represented then maybe a little under will still work.

If there's any chance you can work with an admissions advisor, I recommend it highly. I find that Indians are the least likely to take advantage of these services and the ones who would most benefit from it.

As an FYI, if you're not able to get your GMAT any higher, the part-time path is the back door to a top MBA

Hello All
Hi @Yeshu! Thanks for reaching out. OK - I'm going to give it to you straight.... India - (Top tier US MBA: GSB/Harvard/MIT/Haas etc) - 650 GMAT... I don't have to know any more... unless you have solved global warming --- and even if you have you probably will not get in to those programs with that GMAT. Why? Because they can fill their classes multiple times over and therefore can pick people who have solved global warming AND ALSO scored well on GMAT. Now is all lost.... No... But listen up. Look at the GMAT again- whatever prep you did- do something else next time and give yourself 2 months to hit this hard. Now, if you really want to go top tier also get some help! Seriously- I looked at your resume and it is not gonna fly. You need to condense to the MOST IMPACTFUL info. No one says that you have to list an example of every category of work exposure on your resume! I don't need a creativity example. I need 3 or 4 bullet points of RESULTS. I want one page. And why in heaven's name would you highlight just a few months of Pizza Hut work from 2010? You don't need it and it is not helping your overall case. You need a Resume overhaul here. If you want to consider working with a firm, we offer free consults where you can see how we work with our clients and what we do to help- we have packages that run from resume review and just a few hours of school essay counseling to a full package where we walk the whole journey with you... from school selection to resume to essays to interviews and even strategizing about different offers.
