Great thread! I'm checking with my grad school to see if they will accept my score. Otherwise I will have to take it again.

Going to study my a$$ off for the retake. Studying for 2 days doesn't cut it.

just got the call from Ross... I'm in ...and yes, it's an incredible sensation awesome! ...specially if you left everything on the field ! thanks again to everybody in this forum! I forgot to mention one thing about the GMAT... I'm not English native speaker, in fact...English is my 3rd language so I am far from being good at it. However, I always try to read books in English, I think this helps to maintain a decent vocabulary. In the months before the GMAT I read two books , " Born to run" and " Going Long" , and I guess this helped to improve my score in the verbal part...so, for you guys who are not native English speakers, I would recommend you to pick a topic you really like...and read a book in English about it ( in my case, I am close to run my first marathon , so running as a topic is quite motivating)...I think this will help you to handle easily the RC questions... again...thank you, and do not surrender ! cheers mates

I had 740 on the GMAT PREP yesterday, and I will sit on GMAT in 3 days. So if I get below 700, it is advised that I retake the GMAT?
(because you said that we should retake it if the difference between real GMAT and GMAT Prep is 50 or bigger, I have plenty of time and shoot for a scholarship too)

I am planning to retake GMAT. Scored 710 ( 48Q 39V ) on my first attempts studying only from OG, however i couldn't make it to any of the schools on my list. Hope to make a new start with MGMAT books. Any suggestions for prep???

This my suggestion - hopefully it works, though 710 is a pretty good score already... you are at or above average for pretty much all schools of your choice.

Yes, 710 is a good score, but i belong to the ubiquitous Indian IT Male category, GMAT is the only differentiator.
I see no other reason for being wait listed - my essays were good and so were my interview.

Let me give a background to my question here - I took GMAT in Jan 2011 and got a 710 - Q48, V40...I was reasonably happy with my score..although I knew I had underscored in Quant and could have got a 730. Though, I did not want to give another attempt for merely 20 points...I am reconsidering it when I heard the story of a friend of my mine in office.

My colleague got a 680 (3rd attempt) on GMAT..His background - Completed his electronics engineering, Indian...but changed fields upon graduation...and is and has been in the Consulting space for close to 5 years..so I believe ( and this what I need to confirm ) that he has shed the "Indian IT male tag" by not continuing in IT...the guy has excellent credentials with lots of social work and extra-curricular activities to form a formidable resume.

He applied to ISB and got dinged..the feedback said that since he had completed his engineering ISB considered him as an "Indian IT male"...and tht a score of 730 was a minimum that they expected.

This situation has led me to think that my score is low (as I hail from a similar background)..and I should probably give it another go since I am also an ISB aspirant!!

My background -
Graduation - Computer engineering
Work - ex - 1) Investment banking 2) Consulting - Total work-ex=1.5 years (although I am going to apply after another 2 years only with a total work-ex of 4 years)

Would welcome some help here guys.

Best,
R J

It is really unfortunate to see so many IT males struggling to get admission even after such good scores... But there are so many of them what to do........ Population you see... and the talent too

Heheh :)..you see population is something that is out of our control (actually it is within our control, if you getting my drift :lol: , but let's leave that out of context for the time being), but scoring good is well within our reach!!

I just took the GMAT & scored really low (Q25 / V36). I'm looking for advice/suggestions. I am a 33rd year-old male, non-traditional student I suppose as my undergraduate degrees are in art history, English, and graphic design, and I have 10 years work experience--4 in outside sales & 6 in marketing--currently hold marketing director position for a small business. I have two bachelors degrees--GPA 3.2 first time, 3.7 second time--first from a top tier university & second from a good art school. Applying to part-time programs at Stern & Zicklin for marketing concentration. Was hoping to submit my applications in the next few days for the fall deadline, but now reconsidering since my low scores. Stern also accepts GRE (my scores Q550/ V640). I feel like my GMAT score is just way too low for a chance at Stern, and possibly Zicklin, too. Should I now wait, retake the test over the summer & apply for the spring semester? Or, should I just hope for a miracle & submit my application for fall anyway?
