I'm currently a Project Manager at a non-profit Foundation (we are funders). I'm interested in moving over to a career in Product/Brand Management and am also very interested in getting an MBA to do this. Problem is, my GMAT and GRE scores haven't been very good. I took the GMAT 3 times and the GRE once. Through having some results with better quant scores and other results with better verbal scores my GMAT high score is 550 (I understand this is quite a hindrance). On the GRE I received a 157 in the verbal section and 150 in the quantitative section.

I'm wondering if anyone can suggest MBA programs that I may have a shot at getting into that may help me move into Product Management. MY GPA for undergrad is 2.98. I've been in the workforce for 7 years with a background in project management and political campaign management.

Any suggestions and advice are appreciated.

Thanks for haring your profile. This test scores will really make life difficult for you at any of the top programs. I would look at programs on the west coast in the UC system, in Washington, and in NY like Baruch or Fordham, essentially areas where there are lots of product mgmt jobs and see which might be options for you. Also, if you have not taken a GMAT course, that might be a good investment before you apply to additional programs
