Hi there!

I just appeared for my GMAT and scored 730 (V:49, Q:40). However, my IR score is very low - just 2 (out of 8). Should I retake my GMAT if I am targeting the top 20 B-Schools in US (might also consider Rotman in Canada)? I have already booked the date for the re-test (but I'm willing to cancel it if it is totally unnecessary).

Here are my profile details :

Age: 28 years.

Education :
Bachelor of Engineering (Computer Science), Mumbai University
4 years aggregate = 54%
Final year aggregate = 60%

Work Experience :
3 years as a Senior Application Developer in an IT company based on pricing analytics.

After that I quit my job so as try out my hand at business. I temporarily started Web Development for known people and then later moved on to become a Freight Forwarder (logistics) as the business was closely related to my father's business and getting his clients on board was easier. This has been a period of low opportunity cost when compared to the potential in my earlier IT job (in which I was performing quite well). Just recently has the business started picking up, primarily because of the growth in my client's business. I did try to explore more business ideas (and a lot of time was spent on this), but the ideas did not turn out to be feasible. Overall, additional 3 years were spent working for my business post the IT job. That brings the total work experience to 6 years.

Currently I am in the process of setting up a healthcare service and training company with some of my friends, but this is a side project and my main priority is to complete my MBA and find a job.

Could you please evaluate my profile and provide your valuable input?

Thanks in advance!

I would not worry about the IR, it is a more minor aspect of the GMAT review process. The main areas they are looking to asses is the overall score then your Q/V split which you are fine on so no need to retake. Your work experience may be a concern so just make sure what you have been doing the last few years is clear and makes sense. Hopefully this experience leads into what you plan to do post-MBA. I would take a look at schools in the bottom end of the top20
