Hi, I need an evaluation for my chances in B-schools in Montreal. McGill, Concordia & HEC. I have a decent profile:

Bachelor's in double maths & physics

MBA marketing. 83%

MPhil Consumer Behaviour 3.94/4.0

PhD coursework 3.75/4.0

Two publications from my mphil thesis; two international conference presentations; another paper under review in an Impact factor journal; a Best research paper award from a conference in Malaysia in 2014; Silver medal for academic excellence for Masters; 6 years market research/social issues research experience; IELTS Academic 8.5 (L-9, S-8, W-8, R-8).

New Quebec resident. Adequately fluent in French. Strong LoRs.

However, having said all of this, I have a really really crappy GMAT. 580 (Q39, V 31)

I do have a reason for this disaster, despite a strong academic background. (I am enrolled in a PhD program in my home country Pakistan. I've completed the coursework and cleared the comprehensive exam. But before proceeding further on the thesis proposal, we had to shift to Quebec. We actually had to unexpectedly prepone our departure by a year, so I only had about 25 days to decide to appear in gmat so that I could make the application deadline for Fall 2018 for a new PhD in a world class school. I had NEVER considered sitting for Gmat previously, didn't need to, so didn't really know even the format etc of the exam. So I literally went from 0 prep/knowledge to 580 in under a month. This is an ego satisfying score for me, that I could pull off in 25 days. However the adcoms don't care about any sob stories :)

So, moral of this looooong story, do I have any chance of admission in the three schools I mentioned earlier? I've already applied, but if gmat is the gate keeper, I don't suppose I stand a chance.

Comments please
