Hi Dhanvini

Thanks for getting in touch. Uberizing agriculture sounds like a very interesting idea!

So your GMAT Quant score is great -- 48!! Perhaps you can study hard for your verbal and take the test again? For the top b-schools, we'd really like to see a much more competitive score. (Your GPA is great though!) Also, Round 3 is a tough round. There just aren't that many spaces left in the class so it is a risk. A better strategy might be to spend the next few months working on your GMAT score and then apply in R1 next year.

I hope that helps!

Hello mbaMission,

I am Dhanvini K S from India. I took my GMAT last month and scored a 640 (Q48, V30) :(. Pretty disappointed with my score as I was aiming something above 700. I am aiming for the top 10 schools in the US and I want to get admitted for 2017. I am short of time now, but I am planning to take my GMAT again. Below is a brief of my profile:

1. Work experience - 3+ years in construction domain. Working as an Assistant Manager for an in house consultant of India's second largest real estate developers. Managed to get a double promotion and also an opportunity to manage a team of 12 engineers.
2. Entrepreneurial experience - Working with my father in a family run Agri business for the past 3 years
3. Education - BE Civil Engineering with a GPA of 3.9
4. Lot of volunteering experience in college and currently teaching Maths and Sceine for 8th and 9th grade girls living in an orphanage in Bangalore

Short Term goal - Get into a reputed Management Consulting Firm
Long Term Goal - Start my own company which mainly focuses on providing sustainable lining conditions for the villagers in rural India and also uberize Indian agriculture

I would really appreciate it if you could evaluate my profile and tell me if I stand a chance to get into the Top colleges. Also, I am planning to apply for the 3rd round of application. Will it be a huge risk to take?

Awaiting the evaluation.
Thakn you in advance!

Hi gupta87
Unfortunately, PhD programs in Marketing is not our area of expertise. I'm very sorry we can't help you!

First of all, thank you very much for this section. I have a question. I'm a citizen of Central Asian country, and I have graduated from one of the top universities in my city. However, I don't have high GPA. Not because of I didn't understand the material (I do, actually, pretty well), but because of I didn't want to make my home-tasks (they were just time-consuming routine copy-paste presentations). I preferred to work part-time, earn money and get work experience. Despite that fact that I don't have high GPA, I was considered by my university and by our top recruitment company as one of the best students. I even won a scholarship. I have work experience both in my country and in the United States. Now I'm thinking about my careers. My dream-job is a job, related to small business development in my country. I think that development of small business will help our people and enhance our GDP, so, I'm working on my own project and at the same time I have my small business with good team. My GMAT expectation is about 620-650 (because of verbal section. I'm not native speaker).
So, my question is: who would you prefer for MBA - big-4-consultant/banker/employee-of-big company or risk-taker with GPA 3.17, GMAT 650, intended to improve small business in Central Asia through big investment project (and who used to work in the US)?

P.S. I got my Bachelor degree in 2015. I'm also considering to take Masters in Finance (plus CFA) in leading university of Central Asia and focus on GPA (I'm pretty sure that I can achieve at least 3.7 if I want to). And apply then. What do you think about that?

Thank you

Hi Terabyte

Interesting question. Without knowing more about you and the mysterious other Big4/Consultant/Banker/Employee of Big Company person, it's a really hard (maybe even impossible?) decision to make! But if you're asking for b-school advice, here are my thoughts:

Think of the GMAT as the sprint and GPA as the marathon. B-schools want to know that you have the potential to succeed in their rigorous programs, and GPA is a great signal for that. Now to be clear, a 3.17 isn't a non-starter...it just depends on what schools you are targeting. The 3.17 and the 620 to 650 GMAT suggest to me that your chances are going to be best outside the Top 15 to 20 MBA programs. To mitigate the 3.17, I'd recommend that you aim higher on the GMAT and also take a rigorous stats class and get an A in it.

Masters of Finance programs are great options if you are targeting finance jobs. Typically, people go into banking or investment management after a Masters of Finance. With your current goal of small business development, I'm curious why a MFin?

I hope that helps!

Hi! Thank you for the answer. To "defend" my low GPA I can say that even with low GPA I was considered by my university and by top recruitment firm as one of the best graduates-2015. My GPA score doesn't reflect my knowledge at all. For example, I have about 2.75 GPA from English lessons and Statistics (I'm non-native speaker). But right after I finished my university I made huge statistical project in the US (being just graduate from Central Asian university), which worked really well. Of course, using English and Statistics. During my final year in my university I was just studying and achieved GPA close to 3.8. I think, in my case, GPA is more like survivorship bias.

I mentioned MSc in Finance, because now I'm about to win an educational grant with stipend to the best full-time MSc in Finance program in Central Asia. But then, will it make sense to apply immediately to the top finance MBA programs (Wharton, Columbia, Booth, Stern)? Is it considered as advantage or disadvantage? Won't they ask questions like why do you need second Masters? Even though they have different curriculum. Also I was planning to cover my BA degree GPA by MSc in Finance GPA. Should I apply to MSc in Finance (full-time good program with scholarship), or should I skip it in order to apply to the top MBA program?

Hey again Terabyte

So for all your applications, based on how you explained your GPA to me, I'd recommend that you write an optional essay that explains your GPA. The challenge here is how you word it. You want to show humbleness and awareness and also growth both through school as you mentioned with your 3.8 by the end and also after school. If your stats grade was low in undergrad, I'd recommend taking a stats class now to help mitigate it.

To your question, I do think schools will look even more closely at someone who goes directly from a MFin program to an MBA. You can get a lot of a MFin from an MBA so they may ask why the MFin.

Now the big thing here is personal choice...if you've got a great scholarship to a MFin program, that's something to think long and hard about! With your current stats and limited work experience, I think your chances are unfortunately not very high at a Top 15 MBA program and to mitigate the GPA, you'll want an even higher GMAT score.

If you have further questions, I recommend that you set up a free consultation with one of our consultants. Link in my signature.

Hello all,

I have admits from UCLA and NYU - dinged after interview at Booth and Kellogg. No interviews from Tuck and Ross. All this was ROUND 2 - so I believe I may have a better chance in round 1.

but I have a potential offer as MD/Country Manager for a Oil and Gas company - I would be setting up operations in India.

Obviously its a really big opportunity but I will be 30 this year (2017). if i re-apply, i will 31 at Matriculation. The new job would be huge interms of the impact i can create and potentially strengthen my candidacy - but would be age work significantly against me?

Any and all opinions welcome!!

Considering taking the test a 3rd time [#permalink]

Hello!

I am not sure if this is the right place to direct this question, but I was wondering if someone might be able to provide me with advice.

I took the GMAT for the second time today and score a 700 (Q42 V42 IR 8), and while this does represent solid improvement from my first test back in December of last year (660; Q37 V47 IR 7), I am still left feeling disappointed.

I followed the magoosh 3 month math focused study program, but spaced it out to a timeframe closer to 5 months. I would estimate I put in somewhere between 250-300 hours of studying time.

I am aiming to apply to top 15 programs, and so I know that my quantitative score needs to be higher. My biggest frustration is that I had scored significantly better on gmat prep tests taken within the last month (Q45, Q49, Q47).

Also odd is that up until the moment the score predictor appeared, I had thought I knocked it out of the park. I had managed to finish the quant section without rushing through the last few questions (which usually was an issue in practice tests), and had felt really great about it.

I think some of it may have been due to trying out a new timing strategy on test day that I had read about in the Manhattan gmat roadmap book, in which you block out the questions to solve 5 every 10 minutes. While this did help keep me from rushing at the end, I am wondering if I gave up on questions I could have solved too early and thus set my remaining questions at a lower difficulty level.

I am debating retaking the test for a third time. Since I felt like I did so well, I am unsure what to focus on or how long of a study period would be realistic to expect to legitimately score ~47 on quant (or at the minimum a 45).

As just a bit of background on me, I graduated from Temple University in 2011 with a 3.76 GPA and a humanities degree. Since graduation, I've working the advertising/marketing industry, with the past 4 years spent focused in digital media planning.

Thank you!

Hi mbaMission,

I recently gave my GMAT and scored a 770, with 49 on quant and 47 on verbal. My IR score is 7, and AWA score is 4. I'm afraid my low AWA score will act as a hindrance in me getting into a good university. Could you through some light on this, and possibly suggest of I should give the GMAT again, just for the sake of a low AWA score.

Thanks!

I am Jatin, 27 years old from India. I completed my Bachelors in Commerce (Honours) six years ago and have worked with two of the Big4s ( EY & PwC) in their Transfer Pricing Practice.
I simultaneously took my CFA exams and had completed Level 2 in 2014. I have also been actively involved with societal services and been actively involved with the firm's corporate responsibility teams too. During my college days, I was leading a team of 20 as the Vice President of the college society. I have received accelerated promotion in my stint at my latest job. I now plan to go for my MBA from a renowned college in USA. I am yet to take my GMAT exam. I am interested in Harvard, Stanford, Yale, UCLA, Hass Business School, Stern, Ross to name a few. Request you to please advice me how my profile stands for application in these college. Please advice what should further strengthen my application and how should I go about preparing CV, LOR and SOPs for the application.

Many thanks in advance.
Jatin

Hi Jatin
Thanks for getting in touch and for all the detail. Sounds like you have some great extracurriculars, which will help you with this process. You haven't mentioned your academic results in your post. The schools you are targeting are quite competitive so strong academic results will be very helpful. Also, I'd recommend a 750+ GMAT score for the best chances. Lastly, given your Big4 experience, make sure any of your international experience really shines on your CV...it can be an advantage for international candidates. While you are planning for the GMAT, check out our Complete Start to Finish Guide on our website. It will definitely help answer more of your questions!
