I just returned from exam and I'm ashamed of my score..I got very very bad score
540
Quantitative 44
verbal 21

My weakness is verbal, I think quant is ok. but verbal was very hard for me. what can I do? I don't think that I can improve my verbal score, It was almost maximum I could do. questions were so tricky.

Guys what do you think can I apply to Fordham or St. John with this score.

also I am thinking about retaking, but I'm so dismotivated and have no incentive...

550 is actually St. Johns median score, so you should be fine there (depending on the rest of your profile.)

Fordham will be a bit tougher, their median is around 600, but you fall within their 80% (530-680), so if the rest of your profile is strong you have a shot.

If I were you, I'd try to take it again, cant hurt. If you get into the 600s maybe you'll be able to throw baruch on the list too.

Good luck!

I do not know what to do, I want to appy this year, But I can one more years in any case.... If you have any info, Will I have job opportunities If I graduate St. John, Fordham or Baruch...

Some people say that If I decide to make MBA and be able to find job, I should Graduate Top ranked shools, like Stern, Columbia, Kellog and so on.

Well the stats are out there... My father went to St. John's part time and did well for himself, but that was in the late 80s, a different time.

Stats wise Baruch has 60% employment after 3months, fordham 32% and st. Johns 59%

Starting salary wise, Baruch 63,500+10K, fordham 80K+5K (st. johns doesnt publish that info)

it wont jumpstart your career like a top 25, but they are all atleast somewhat respected in NYC.

If the rest of your profile is solid, I'd take another year and try to get your score up. Its your call though.

I think Baruch is more respected in NYC. However, that score and your GPA should pose no problem for the schools listed. However, consider how much money you are planking down for an MBA and whether the ROI really is there.

Thanks guys, I appreciate your help, I think I will retake exam one month later....one more question, I want Scholarship even 10 or 15%, would be great, on what factors does Scholarship and loans depend? As, I know one main requirement is good GMAT Score..
