Hi,

I just took my GMAT exam and my Score is 690 (V-31,Q-50,IR-8).

I am an Engineer graduate from one of the very reputed college in India with GPA 4. I am working as Linux and VMware administrator with 7 years of experience.

I am targeting Chicago based universities, primarily Booth and Kellog.

Please suggest if I should try for round 2 with this GMAT score or Should I retake the exam?

Looking forward for your suggestions.
Thank you!!

When are the R2 deadlines and how many schools you are applying to in R2 ? I guess you can do both. You can retake the test in November end and apply for Round 2 in January. It really depends how much you can improve your score? If you can improve your score by a good 20-30 points with 3 weeks of study, then you should go for the retake.
Also, in case you haven't even started with the essays, the resume, and speaking to current students then the 1 month time period for the applications might seem too less to prepare a great application.
