Generally speaking the average GMAT at most top schools is around 690-700 so although you're a bit on the low end with a 680 you have a good shot, especially given your other stats and your internships. I'd consider HEC Paris, IE, ESSEC, LBS and ESADE. Good luck to you!

pulkitbansal3, your family business experience will help set your application apart, but honestly it's going to be tough to get into a MiM program with a 650, especially when your GPA is already on the low end. Ideally you want to score at least a 700 and the higher the better to help outweigh that GPA. It's particularly tough when you are an Indian male (assuming that is the case for you), since it's a population that tends to have very high GMAT scores. Is there any possibility of improving your score?

Yes, i can give another attempt. My AWA is also low this time, i want to give another shot for sure. Current score is Q45, looking to get a Q47 to cross the 700 mark. (V35)
Thanks for the help though! :D

Feel free to circle back once you have your new score if you want to talk schools! I'd aim for a 700 minimum - 720 would be even better! Good luck!

Hi mh95,
Thanks for reaching out! Your GPA is a bit on the low end so a top GMAT score (700+) will be critical. You have some interesting work experience but depending on the school you may have a bit too much for a MiM program. Some of them only want candidates with one year or less. Check out the requirements for each school to be sure. That said, most top MBA programs want candidates with 3-5 years of experience upon matriculation so worst case if you don't get into an MiM this year you could reapply to b-school next year.

Hello Admissionado ,

Thank you for you reply. I am planning to apply for fall 2020. I am more inclined towards MBA. However, my work experience is less since many schools have 3-5 work ex. criteria as you mentioned which is why I opted for MiM.

Can you suggest me a few schools that will accept me for an MBA program. I will have approx. 2.4 years of work experience by then.


Thanks
Admissionado

It would be a bit tough to get into an MBA program with only 2.4 years of experience, which is why I actually meant you could consider if next year if you don't get into an MiM this year. That would also give you a year to get some more accomplishments under your belt & possibly even have time to nail a higher GMAT score. You're a bit in an awkward spot with your current years of work experience since you're over the typical amount for a MiM but about a year away from having enough for b-school. It's worth a shot for MiM programs this year & if you don't get in you could apply to b-schools next year. That would be my advice!

You're absolutely right..I was thinking on similar lines too.

But isn't it too late to apply this year for an MiM since I don't have a GMAT and IELTS in hand yet?

Also, I guess very few universities have spring intake.

mh95, it all depends on how quickly you can get a strong score on the GMAT! :) That said, honestly your time is probably best spent doing everything you can to strengthen your candidacy in this next year so you can just apply to b-school. Another year will also give you time to really do your best on the GMAT.

If you want any help thinking through your strategy for how to spend this next year definitely reach out to us. We offer an Advanced Planning package for candidates who are thinking ahead & want to take steps to make sure their candidacy is as strong as possible. If you email Claudia at claudia@admissionado.com she can give you all the details!

I think you've got a solid shot at it, although your chances will be best schools on the lower end of that top 15 range. Your GPA is on the lower end, and while your GMAT is solid, a higher score (~740) would help to outweigh that GPA & improve your chances. You are coming from a very tough demographic when it comes to MiM programs and it's one that tends to have very high GMAT scores. That said you definitely have a shot at it even with the 720! But if you feel like you've got it in you to raise that score without compromising your ability to do your best on the other parts of your application I'd consider retaking the test!
