Hi. I'm studying in University of Delhi, India. My scores are in top 1%, I've been engaged in volunteer activities since the past 7 years, I've been the cofounder of a failed startup, had extensive out of college courses on entrepreneurship and financial markets and I've cleared 10 certifications from the National Stock Exchange of India. I also have various leadership positions in the college societies. However, my GMAT score is 560. Should I apply to HBS now or retake the GMAT later and apply later?

With a 560 GMAT, you have no chance whatsoever of getting an interview with the Harvard Business School. For 2+2, you really need to have a minimum of 700 and in most cases it should be 730+ because you are in the over-represented part of the applicant pool. Don't waste your time. Gain some good work experience, instead, and retake the GMAT until you score above 700. Otherwise, you are looking at an entirely different set of business schools, probably those ranked outside the Top 25.

Hi Kanika

560 is too low to give you a chance at the 2+2. The rest of the profile does look promising though, based just on what you mention. You should plan to retake later, but keep in mind the eligibility criteria for the 2+2. The 2+2 is meant for candidates in the final year of their undergrad programs, and the deadline isn't too far away now.

In addition, you may like to consider other early career programs (the ISB YLP and the IESE YTP are two examples), and Master in Management programs (Kellogg, Ross, Duke, and a number of top European schools offer those).

You may find the following link helpful as you look at other programs: Top early career MBA programs

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