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.

Hello,

Can you please evaluate my profile? Here’s a brief description about me-

Indian, Male, 30
GMAT- 720
Undergrad in Mechanical Engineering- 2.75/4
Masters in Supply Chain from Ross- 3.7/4

Founded a manufacturing start-up where I worked for 5 years. Grew the company revenue by more than 600% in five years before I decided to sell it. Reason being wanted to switch in a Operations role in Hi-Tech

Working in Amazon as Operations Manager for the past 2 years. Leading a team of 200 people

Co-curricular- Was the Vice President of a non-profit for 3.5 years, raised more than $60K for the same. Peer Coach at Ross, leadership positions in some clubs but nothing major.

I applied in B-Schools before my masters but got dinged by most. I’m only targeting the following schools-

1. HBS
2. Stanford
3. MIT
4. Haas
5. Kellogg (not sure)

I don’t think I can improve my GMAT any further. My goal is to transition into Product Management after MBA.

Thank You very much!!

Thanks for sharing your profile. Really interesting background with strong (and unique) work experience. Competitive GMAT score but a low UG GPA countered by a strong Grad GPA.

You're an interesting candidate, I think Kellogg and Haas will give you the best chances, I would focus more on Kellogg than it seems you have to date. You are applying to some of the best schools in the world so it is not always enough to be competitive you also need to stand out. I think you have some areas that will help you stand out but enough red flags that will keep you being a slam dunk at the top programs. I would spend some more time connecting with people and reps from the school to build your relationship and knowledge, this could pay dividends when it comes time to submit and during the assessment process
