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

650 won't cut it. Top 15 or M7 is a lot different than just top 50, especially in terms of job placement, and it's not really worth going to a >20 rated school. 700 or bust, my friend. That's the more or less magic number.

Thanks for your thoughts on this. My aim for going for MBA is not really about getting a job. I want to do an MBA to learn about the US, network and then set up a business. That said how does something like Babson or Hult sound, especially given my business background? Cheers.

Not sure about those schools as my desired career path took me west. Most, myself included, use the MBA as a catalyst for a new career. With that being said, if you're looking to start a business, I would focus on schools with strong entrepreneurship programs; in addition, what kind of business (i.e. if it's tech, look at schools closer to silicon valley). Best of luck in your search!

Hello Yeshu_a,

I think the best advice would be to look at the middle 80% GMAT score of your target schools.
If you are in, it's OK. If not... retake ;)
Keep in mind that schools only care about your highest score !

Good luck for your applications !

I'm just going to say this. If you walked into the test center and got a 650, you really need to put a lot more effort into this exam before deciding you're done. The fact that you're not trying to use the MBA to get a job, at this moment in time, isnt really a reason to lower your standards.

If you're going to start a business you want to go to the best possible program, for the sake of said company... beyond the actual information you'll gain, the network you will obtain will really put you in certain circles the rest of your life.

I would think of yourself as equally important to a recruiting company. You want to have a top MBA that you can present to investors. It's worth doing properly.
