Hey guys!

All your profiles look so great! I will also apply to SSE for the next intake : MSc Finance (1st choice) and MSc Economics (2nd choice). Here is my profile:
- 21 years old
- graduated last June from a Parisian university: 14.52/20 GPA (in the French grading system), which is good (I suppose) according to the conversion table provided on GMAC’s website (if a GPA>14/20 then that makes 4 in the American system??)
- Bachelor in economics and management (dual option) plus advanced BSc in economic law at the same time (GPA: 14.5/20). I wrote a bachelor thesis entitled The Employment Protection Legislation and its economic consequences: French and Swedish cases as part of it.
- A recommandation from my thesis director
- TOEFL 110
- French: native; Spanish: fluent; Italian: intermediate
- GMAT 650 BUT, will retake soon
- Two exchange semesters abroad (Stockholm University)
- Member of the governing committee (as head of communication) of the Junior Enterprise in my university for a year; now alumni
- 2 months internship in a big-three insurance company
- extracurricular: mainly gliding. For those who don't know what it is, it's an air sport in which pilots fly an unpowered aircraft.

I really hope I’ll hit my target score on my next GMAT! I hope I’ll see you next summer in Stockholm!

Hi,
You have a really strong profile! I know that Indian applicants usually have great GMAT scores, so it is possible that your score is lower than that of some other applicants with similar backgrounds. However, I would assume that you will get accepted :)

Wow, your profile sounds brilliant!
I’ve also applied already (but for Economics) and I’m checking my email inbox every day.

So excited about their decisions regarding our applications!!

Do they usually release decisions earlier than the deadline? I received an email from the school mentioning that I will be informed about the decision by end-Dec.

From what I have gathered, many people have received their decisions earlier than the final deadline (Dec 22nd). I would assume that we will receive the decisions around Dec 15th.

Hey Guys,

I am applying for Economics but I am afraid my GMAT results will kill my chances.

My Profile:
Bachelor: Economics & Business Economics in Germany, 13.8/15 (Best in Class)
Working Experience: 1 year student trainee in consulting, 2 years Strategic Project Management
GMAT: 670 Total Score, Verbal 42 (96th P.) but really, really messed up the quantitative part with 39 Points (37th P.)
Languages: TOEFL 115/120, TOEIC 990/990, Fluent in three other languages (B2 or higher)
Scholarship: German Academic Scholarship Foundation (biggest and oldest foundation in Germany)
References: Prof. in University and my current Boss
Extracurricular: Lots of extracurricular activities like student president, member of several student organizations, work in refugee camps etc.

You think I stand any chance without re-taking the GMAT?

Honestly, I would retake the GMAT. You have a really strong profile, so why would you take a risk? With a 700+ GMAT you would most likely get accepted.

If it's any help, I was in a similar situation. I scored 670 on my first try due to time management issues. I knew that I could do better, so I booked the next available exam date on the very same day. Then I studied for 2 weeks and took two practice exams (750, 770) during that time. I ended up underachieving in the verbal part (had 40 seconds for the last 3 questions), but I still scored 720.

I also applied for Business & Management, and the wait is killing me too! Hopefully we'll get a positive answer.
