Thanks for taking the time to look at my profile -

I am debating on whether it is worth taking the GMAT again. I took it in 2008, when I graduated from undegrad and am afraid it will be the one thing holding me back from my desired schools.

Work:
I have 4+ years of work experience in Washington, DC working as a Senior Consultant for Deloitte Consulting. My projects have included federal program management, internal controls, risk advisory, and human capital analytics.

GMAT:
I took the GMAT in 2008 when I graduated from undegrad. I received a 650, 78 percentile. The scores will expire after this year.

School:
University of Maryland. BS in Finance. BS in Political Science (double degree).
3.7 GPA

I am targeting the below schools:
Anderson, Marshall, Kenan-Flagler, McCombs, and McDonough

I would appreciate any feedback from you.

Thanks!

Well... for the schools you have suggested your GMAT might be enough.
HOWEVER, if you were to get a higher GMAT it might open many doors for you, as you are starting from a very good background.

Nice background.. but still: with 700 it would be twice as easy to get to any of those b-schools
