I have a slightly different situation. I am Brazilian and work in Brazil. As soon as the company heard about my MBA plans, it offered a transfer to the us as an employee, if i did a part time mba. which i am completely ok with.
Up to now, i have only taken the GMAT once, its a low grade but as the avg gmat for the weekend part time is not as high as the full time, i might be able to do it. What do you guys think? do you think i can go ahead with the current GMAT grade, or take another GMAT?

Background and nationality- Brazilian, Female, work in finance in the auto industry
Undergrad Information- BBA, graduated in 2012 in a top 3 school in brazil. we dont use GPA here..i had a 7.9 out of 10.
GMAT: 620 (47Q, 28V)
School: Ross - Wekend MBA
Work experience and leadership - been working full time for almost 4 years, mostly in the auto sector. I am in a leadership program in my company, which is composed of less than 5% of people in finance (my area). I like to do a lot of outside things within the company: i am part of the recruiting team for my school; part of a lean manufacturing group that improves processes among the company and of a workplace improvement group (that has projects to retain employees mode)
Community and others - i have worked with special kids for a while, now i joined a mentorship program in my company to help kids to study and jumpstart to work
Post MBA goals- i like my sector and major. I have two main goals -> Develop my leadership skills and strengthen my hard skills (i tend to work with a lot of older and more experienced people (mostly man), and wanted to be very secure of my points, so improving that would help build more knowledge)

Thank you guys for the help. i really appreciate it!! :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Wellllll, for a PT MBA the schools can be mighty flexible. But if you are going to move to the US, might as well do one of the better ranked programs, so why not retake?

From what I have seen almost any GMAT taker can get higher than a 620 and there is a direct correlation between study time and test score... so buckling down and getting that score can help you a great deal!

I hope this helps,
Best,
JF

Totally agree with previous poster - Ross is not bad by any means, but why not shoot for Berkeley, Booth or Kellogg. I have helped people get into Booth & Kellogg with this GMAT score but would recommend retaking it if you can. AND - if it doesn't jeopardize the effort you need to put into the applications themselves. If you had been getting mock exam scores significantly higher than 620 you would be leaving money on the table by not taking it again.
