Hi,

I took my first GMAT 4 days back and scored a 690 (q49, v35). I am an Engineer (female, Indian) and work as a Software Consultant. I have around 5 years of experience and have a good GPA. I have decent community experience as well. I am interested in a career switch to Marketing. Can someone please suggest a few good schools in the US that I can apply to? And do you think I stand a chance at Wharton?

Thank you!

Hi radhikabahl - as I'm sure you are aware, it is tough being Indian in an IT field, very competitive, and puts a lot of pressure on having a good GMAT.
For this reason I am afraid I feel that Wharton would be out of reach, unless you apply through a dual degree program where there is a really good fit.
is there any way you could go from 690 to 710? it would make a huge difference. I feel that if you have a 710 and a good, well-written, well articulated application (CV, recommendations, app boxes, and essays) you could be competitive for Ross. Kelley is very strong in marketing. That said - the visa situation is very sticky for CPG. had you intended to stay in the US for a couple years post MBA?

Hi there,
You need to submit a strong application and highlight your strengths, and if you can improve your GMAT score that would help, but the GMAT is not the most important thing - many candidates were admitted to top MBA programs with low scores, as you can see here: https://aringo.com/aringo-top-mba-gmat-results/
