Hello,

Would really appreciate some help evaluating my profile.

I'm a 26 year Indian male with a engineering under-grad degree. 4 years of work experience. 2 years with the consulting practice of a big 4 audit firm, 2 more with a boutique management consulting firm.

I wrote the GMAT today and scored a 720. However, that came with a disappointingly low 44 in the quant section. I'm not a quant whiz, like most other indians, by any means, but i'd been pretty consistently scoring 48/49 in the mock tests that i took. Given my fairly strong verbal section, i hoped to score a 740+ ,if not higher and apply to some of the top 20 schools. Putting the score down to sleep deprivation and nerves.

Would you consider this profile, with a well written essay a competitive one considering the kind of schools i want to apply to?
Do most schools look at sectional cut-offs? If so, will a Q44 hold me back significantly on my application?

Thanks!

Hey there,
Well first of all, a profile is not made up of GMAT alone, although yes it is a very very important factor, and especially for Indian candidates...

I think the first question you need to ask yourself is: are you satisfied with your score?
If you are sure you can do better, then take your time. You're quite young. You have your entire career before you! Might as well take the time and get the best GMAT score you can. And if you want one more year, your profile will only improve...
What do you think?

Best,
