New post 01 Jul 2018, 21:45
I've written the GMAT twice and the second score was worse than the first one. I will probably blame my poor time management for it.
GMAT1-480 (Q32 V27) (I didn't get these scores even on my worst days)
GMAT2-470 (I didn't bother looking at the Q V scores)

I've revised the strategies and I always come to GMATCLUB for attempting 10-20 questions per day and it went incredibly well. But there is something about the test day and the results with which I am jinxed.

I've come to the conclusion that I won't be doing it anymore.It's taking a lot out of me(emotionally and physically) and I feel I can devote this time in preparing a solid application. I'm looking for an MIM program (I know HEC is out) But I still want a top tier college, atleast ESCP or EDHEC or AUDENCIA(looking for a place which can provide an average salary of 40k euros or more). I prefer it to be in FRANCE or even GERMANY. I have heard some cases where they have waived the GMAT and I would like to do the same. I will showcase my abilities and skills which are asked in the GMAT and I will produce a solid letter, but I need a thumbs up from an expert to let me know that this is not a waste of time. Also, should I send them a mail or should I attach the waiver letter with my application?

Some info about me, I'm an engineer, CGPA-7 from a reputable college, work experience of 6 months as MARKETING MANAGER and still working. Some internships and loads of extra curricular activity with several awards in sports and academics. I do read for please so rest assured I can provide an amazing essay and I know exactly schools look for in terms of profile. All I need is an interview call and I'll take it from there.

If this doesn't workout i have to settle with GRENOBLE. Let me know what you think. Thank you.

I believe some of these programs such as ESCP accepts scores from a range of tests, including there own tests. Read here. You could take those or the GRE.

If the agree to waive off the GMAT then thats a great thing. However I believe you should still take it. Generally the option to waive is available to senior managers who have considerable leadersihp experience to show, but you are not applying to a program with that demographic. So I am doubtful the b-schools will offer you the option to waive. Also, why give the adcom a chance to assume that you are not upto the academic rigour and discipline required by an MS course because you are unable to take the test they require from every applicant.

Hi RAHUL123124,
You can find a list of top MiM programs here, start looking into them to find a suitable program for you, maybe even one that doesn't require GMAT (although GMAT scores are required for most MiM programs): https://aringo.com/masters-in-management/
Good luck!
