I just took the GMAT and was wondering if I could get some help evaluating my profile to see if I should retake the test in order to get a higher score.

Profile:
27 year old white male
3.2 GPA, B.A. in Economics, minor in Russian Language and Culture from a top 25 liberal arts school
NCAA Lacrosse Captain, awarded for leadership as a Senior
4 years as a Marine Corps Combat Arms (Artillery) Officer, regularly identified as a top performer
700 GMAT (7 IR/Q47/V40)

Schools I am interested in:
1. Harvard (obviously a reach)
2. London Business School
3. Tuck
4. Northwestern
5. Michigan
6. MIT
7. Texas
8. Georgetown

Thanks for the help!

Thank you for the post and congrats on getting a 700 on the GMAT! With this list of schools, you could rest or retake. It honestly depends how far up the list you realistically want to reach. If you want to target the lower end of the list then you do not need to retake the GMAT. However if you want to target Kellogg, Tuck, MIT etc then you will want to at least try to retake the GMAT.

Feel free to email your resume if you want more specific guidance. I work with a lot of military applicants and that will give you an edge. That said, you still have a 3.2 GPA which is on the lower side.

Since you have the time, you are likely better off retaking but send me a resume and we can discuss further.

Best,
Scott

Hey man,
Good to hear from you!
Now coming from the Marines as an officer with a solid GMAT is an awesome thing to be sure.
Now I would love to dig into your profile with you, but I am a little short on info, though.

I need a LOT more info from you - school name, employer name, titles, promotions, greatest achievements, volunteer work, sports, community service, religious involvement, leadership... I need to know what you DID in the Marine Corps etc. before I can give you a real evaluation.

It will also be very helpful if you can elaborate upon your goals.

Have a look at some of the other very detailed profile requests on this board and do something similar and I'll be happy to get back to you.

Best,
JF


I hope this helps! And feel free to drop us a line for a free consultation.

Thanks for sharing your profile. You have a good profile but you are largely targeting some of the top programs so I'm sure you are aware of some of these challenges. B-schools love military given the strong interpersonal (leadership/teamwork skills) which should help you. Your GMAT and gPA are low for the top programs lIke Kellogg, HBS, and MIT and probably LBS as well but the others are in play. To maximize your chances at the other programs you may want to try to sneak that GMAT up a bit
