Hi,

Any help anyone can provide will be very much appreciated. I am trying to determine whether I should retake my GMAT. I am interested in applying to the following schools: HBS, Stanford, Wharton, Tuck, Yale, Cornell, Kellogg, and Booth.

Here are my "stats":

African American Male (31 years old)
GPA: 2.57 from the United States Air Force Academy (c/o 2005) ... Major: Management
GMAT: 670 (Q42, V40) -- I only took this once

Work Experience:
Air Force
Intelligence officer for Air Force Special Operations (Japan, Philippines, Korea, Thailand) – 3 years ... (Received 2 commendation medals for saving people’s lives.)
Program Manager for \$26 million ejection seat program – 2 years
Civilian
Global project manager for oil and gas company managing \$55.1 million project that spans across 7 different countries – 1.5 years

Given your target programs, it would be better if you [url]retook the GMAT[/url], especially if you think you can raise it. I can't guarantee your current score will keep you out, but a higher score would certainly help.

Best,
Linda

Thank you for the feedback. I'll probably retake it since it is very early in the process.

You're welcome. Good luck with that GMAT! (I think you're right to retake.)

Best,
