I am planning to apply for MBA program in Top 20-30 colleges for Fall 2014

1. Marriot School
2. U of Madison

I got a 610 score on my GMAT and I am disheartened as I was scoring a lot more in my practice tests.

Being an applicant from India, I know it's not a good score and I don't have much time to retake the exam as the deadlines are approaching. Here's a bit abut my profile. I have experience of 3.5 years ( 4 years at matriculation) working as a Business Analyst and an Associate Project Manager in USA and India for Healthcare firms. Also, I started my own Fitness consulting firm in India and have been managing all the operations on my own.I did my undergrad from North Dakota State university and scored a GPA of 3.6. My academics are good.I am a certified Personal Trainer from 3 prestigious institutions. Additionally, I have been working with Non Government Organizations and involved in community services here in India. My extra curricular activities are good too. I think I have a good profile but I am not confident about my score.

I needed your guidance on my case. Do you think I should go ahead and apply with this score? I don't know if I have enough time to retake my exam and apply later for R3 deadlines . Please could you advice me on how I should approach my application process.

I agree that your profile is good and other than your GMAt, you should be able to differentiate yourself from the pack. Since Marriott has a much higher average GMAT and with only 8% of the admitted students there scoring below a 610, I would definitely try to get that score up before applying. There is certainly a chance, but with 92% of the admitted students scoring above your level, the chances are greatly diminished. One caveat may be that there could be fewer Indian applicants to BYU--this is something you can ascertain by reaching out directly to the admissions office. They certainly could let you in with a 610 without doing major damage to their average if they have a need for an international student with work experience in the US. Would be worth a call to discuss with someone in admissions. They will give you excellent guidance.
