Hi,

I am a female engineer with 5 years of work experience In IT.I scored a 640(QA 48, VA 30).I scored a dismal 2 in the IR section.

Need help in terms of which schools can I apply to and also will IR score make a difference to the applications?

Thanks.

Hey pallavitiwari26 ,

Your username tells you are an Indian. With that said and your current score, I would refrain to get admitted into any of the colleges where there is no ROI.

I would prefer to retake GMAT and push my score to something close to 700.

Good Luck :)

Hi Pallavi,

I agree with that advice. If this was your first attempt for GMAT, you should retake. A better GMAT score will open up higher ranked MBA programs for you.

That said, there are many programs which will be okay with your current score.

Hi, I will be taking TOEFL in 2 weeks.I will also be preparing SOPs,LORs,etc. So is it enough time to prep for GMAT in order to increase score to around 700? If yes,then around what date should I be aiming at? End of December?
