Hi Saarthak

The deferred (EEO) program at ISB is quite competitive in terms of GMAT scores. Given that you have time on your side, would recommend that you increase the score to over 700 and apply in R1 next year than now. That will also hep you tide over the undergrad score to an extent. The rest of your profile is pretty good, so go with a GMAT score to match that.

Hope this helps. Feel free to come back with more queries as needed.

thanks for the prompt reply but I don't think i can do better than 670 or at max 690 as my score ranges in this area only?
So, is there no hope for my selection in ISB?

Thank you.

Understood. However, that may be where you currently are. With more time and focus, you can (in fact, anyone can) raise your score to above 700. In case, though, you do max out at 690 even after your best shot, you can then try to focus on differentiating your application based on your NGO leadership and your law background.

i was actually trying to hope it on my legal work especially with labor and sexual harassment cases which I settled during my NGO experience.
