Hello,

I have recently appeared for GMAT and unfortunately, I scored very low specifically verbal - 620 ( Q49, V26, IR5, AWA6).
Background:
Indian, Female, 30
Graduated from Govt Engineering Collg - UIT RGPV with GPA 3.8

Work Ex (Total 7.3 years, 90 Months):
Working as a Bigdata Analyst & Developer in a MNC. I have been working in London for past two years.
I was a part of Business Intelligence and Bigdata Centre of Excellence team for 3 and half year.
I was planning to do MS in business analytics. Is there any possibility of getting into any good college at this score.

I have short listed following schools
USC Marshal
Northwestern University McCormick School
University of Maryland Robert H Smith School
North Carolina State University ( No GMAT score required)

Thanks!

If you can reappear for the GMAT again do that. MBA is a one time thing in life. It’s better you do it from good colleges. With this score you won’t get good college. Also always check ROI. Good luck :)

It will be difficult to get into a top school with a score that low, although it does help that your lowest score is verbal and not quant. They may be willing to overlook a low verbal score if every other part of your application is very strong. That said, you are also quite a bit above the average age at some of these schools, which can also be a challenge. For example, at McCormick, only 5% of the student body enters with more than 5 years of work experience. When you get too "old" they worry that you no longer need the degree. You'll want to make sure you have a very strong argument for why you do need this education to achieve your career goals, and if there is any possibility of improving your GMAT score I'd definitely give that a shot as well! Even a 680 would make a big difference. Good luck to you!
