Hello laravic

First of all your GMAT score is not low, it would be average, especially for majority of European schools.

Is it possible to retake it before the deadlines ?

That will depend on particular school...in general I assume it will be possible, however if deadlines are near, you have another strategy to apply and owe them GMAT score...or self report it if you already re-took it before the deadline...they will usually wait for scores to come....but I advise you to communicate that with every school in advance, to make sure...that will also help you to cut schools on your list, since now you have them too many anyway.

With current score if I were you, I would only go for European schools.

Currently US schools on your list are in general out of scope, only Simon, Fisher and Brandeis are within reach.

For rest of US schools it would be beneficial if you score 700+.


That being said, admission committees do evaluate profile holistically, so they still might be interested in you, since you have some diversification strengths.

You are woman, from North Africa (based on languages spoken I assume from Morocco, Algeria or Tunisia ) so that would be your certain advantage in overall application pool, there would not be many with similar background.

Contemporary climate is particularly encouraging for women in science, you will benefit from that for sure.


You already have been in US as exchange student, that is also a plus, you know how system works there, your GPA is fine.

Your work experience and extra-curricular activities are relevant to your intended studies in Finance, especially those in states.

All in all, with 650 go for European schools, those in France can be perfect match for you, since you speak the language....if you decide to retake it and score around 700+ then any of top US schools on your second dream list are realistic also.


Good Luck ! :cool:

Hello Rahul5843


You didn't ask any specific question, however with 730 score you can apply to any school and be accepted, if GMAT was only factor in application.

Your score would be average for Harvard and Stanford for instance, give or take few points.

I don't know do you want to pursue MBA, if yes what specialization, or MS in Finance, since you replied to previous post, still answer would be the same, you can get in at any school, at any program, if we look only from perspective of your GMAT score.

Your GPA is fine, I can see you have important experience in IT...since you have also working experience in Fidelity investments...maybe you are shooting for MS in Finance after all...or MBA with specialization in Finance.

In general IT programming and Finance are good match these days, a lot of FinTech companies are booming.

NGO is a plus.


In US best options for Finance are, Booth, Wharton, Stern, Columbia, Berkeley...maybe MIT etc. in Europe I would go for LBS, LSE, University of St. Gallen, Oxford etc.

Good Luck to you too ! :cool:
