Hello folks

Right after the exam, I received an overall score of 680 (Q49, V33, IR7, no writing assessment score yet). Two questions mentioned below, are giving me sleepless nights. I would very much appreciate to have your feedback and comments.

1. I am planning to apply for INSEAD MBA and MIT SDM. Do these schools factor in individual scores especially the IR score?
2. I am planning NOT TO RETAKE the test. But if any of you differ, your comments/ thoughts would be nice to hear and analyze!

FYI, I am from India and I have ~2 years work-ex each (overall 4 years) in computer hardware industry and financial services sector. My undergrad (B Tech) GPA ~3.64 and post-grad (business mgmt) GPA is ~2.91. My GMAT practice tests were 700 each.

Looking forward to your responses.

Thanks !

I think that you should 100% retake. First of all the median of such schools is way higher and secondly you are Indian and your pool is super competitive so unless you have crazy extra CV, you should definitely retake and aim for 730-740 minimum

In my opinion you should consider a retake, since the colleges you are targeting have a high cut-off marks

I completely agree with these other guys.

You have below average years of work experience in the typical fields, are Indian, and have decent undergrad/poor grad gpa. None of this is helping your case unless you have an unbelievable resume/story.

You are going to need to score much higher on the gmat to have a good chance at those schools. To answer the IR question, it won't make any difference. Q and V are the major components, AWA may matter some if you are international/studied internationally.

You are in the largest pool( Indian) and competition is super high. Unless you have very strong academic, and extra curricular; and some not very common job background, you have to target at least 700+ to make your profile competitive. And you are already close. So, I think its worth trying!

Hi OmFall2018,

First off, a 680/Q49 is a strong score (it's above the 80th percentile overall), so it could be enough to get you into your first-choice School. As such, a retest might not be necessary. You're ultimately asking Admissions questions though, so you would likely find it beneficial to speak with an Admissions Expert about your overall profile. There's a Forum full of them here:

Hello folks

I wrote GRE as well and scored 170Q, 161V. I was trying to convert this score to GMAT equivalent using the convertor available are GRE website and it said it fared at ~750.
1. Shall I use GRE instead of GMAT at MIT SDM application?
2. I have already sent GMAT score to MIT SDM but not yet applied. If I use GRE, will my GMAT score (680) be still visible to the adcom? If yes, shall I use both or only GMAT.

Thanks!!

Hello! From my limited knowledge of your profile, it seems like you should have a chance at getting in your top schools. Of course, you will need to be differentiated as an applicant in elements outside the GMAT. If you feel like you are a strong applicant within your cohort, then I would not consider retaking.
