Hello there good sir!
I’d love to help you out but without more info it’s gonna be hard. Where do you work? What do you do? How quickly have you advanced? Do you have any leadership? What are your great achievements? Do you have notable community service or extra curriculars?


What I CAN however say with the information you gave me, is that as in Indian/Tech/Male candidate with a so-so GMAT, your school choice might be a bit limited.

So the first thing to point out and to consider is: should you take the GMAT again?

The short answer is: if you think you can do better, YES. You must. The applicant pool of Indian/Tech candidates is so huge that you need an edge to get into a decent program.

For some further in-depth reading about the considerations and challenges you are facing I would recommend these two articles:

I hope you find this helpful!
Best,
JF

Vinamra,

My suggestion is that you retake the GMAT. With your undergrad and ZS Associates experiences, you can aim for the top colleges, but the low GMAT score will make you a lot less competitive.

Hi vinamra94,

You belong to an overly competitive applicant pool, and irrespective of your work experience, you’ll improve your odds significantly by crossing 710-720 on GMAT.
