Hey All

I have a GMAT score of 700 (Q49, V35) from last year. I again appeared for GMAT again this week but faired badly so I canceled the scores. I cannot take the test again and hence, I would like to apply using 700 only. Coming to my profile -

I am an Indian male with work experience in sales & marketing analytics for about four years. I am in a client facing role and managing a team of 6 people. I have good academics (topper in schools and 90%ile in college) but not impressive extracurriculars. I am aiming schools such as - Carey, Kelley, Tepper, Eli Broad (Michigan), Questrom, USC Marshall, Emory. What do you think about my chances of getting admitted? One constraint that I have is the scholarship. I would not be able to pay full-tuition fees or take a loan.

I know the information is very limited but any help would be highly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

Raw scores are pretty good I think that your chances are strong. One of my clients last year Max the number of GMAT attempts and he ended up taking the GRE and he's at Wharton right now. With the equivalent of a 620. Of course he's French and has a whole different situation with representation but it does present an opportunity. If you need a scholarship then you'll need to apply places where your GMAT is 30 points above the average. And make sure you articulate some really exciting aspects of your profile that will bring diversity to the school ( this indicates that maybe you want to be strategic about the schools you choose. You might consider adding UC Irvine, maybe UC Davis to the list.
If you're open to Europeans schools that might be a good way to go, given that you have 4 years of work experience and hopefully more outside of full-time. A one-year program would maybe allow you to get out of there with a higher brand name and less debt. I like Oxford these days. Good things afoot.
