Has anyone ever heard of an applicant cracking IIM-A with a GMAT score of 640? I believe I have a good profile but I cannot improve on my GMAT. Need advice.

Chances are very very low! However, if you have an unique profile that explains your inability to retry GMAT, you may get an interview call.

Hello all, I am an alumnus of the 16~17 batch and am fairly active in social media. Please do ask in case of any questions (no profile evaluation requests please :P)

 Hi, I have a query. What is the difference in terms of chances while applying for R2 applications. Does someone applying for R1 have advantage over R2 applicants? Thanks in advance for your reply.

@navnitkrsingh We have 4-5 people from SBI in our current MBA batch. Do well in your GMAT and ace the interview. The Admit does not depend on a single score but on a combination of different parameters. Best of luck.

Focus on GMAT and profile. The rest will fall in place easily.

 Post my Mechanical Engneering I did Graduate Marine Engineering (to understand it better, it's a 1 year transition course to Marine Engineering). I have 8 years of experience in Merchant Navy and scored 310 (Q160, V150) on GRE. Is it worth applying to pgpx with this diverse experience and score.

@Satyajeet_Chouhan Every year we have a few people from Merchant Navy. The average GRE score for our current batch is 320. IIM A is flexible in terms of giving interviews because they want to know the real you behind the numbers. The Admit does not depend on a single score but on a combination of different parameters. I would expect you to get a interview call with your score. If you can improve your score go for it otherwise apply with your current score and ace the interview. Best of luck.

While your GRE score is low, you should evaluate other factors in your resume and decide on how you fare with competing applicants. IF you think, you can score more, try again for GRE, else apply with this score and focus on your application.

With the information given, there is nothing that stops you from getting in. However, a lot will ride on varied factors such as GMAT score and clarity of thoughts on why you need another MBA.

It all depends on how good you are in the interview. Why a second MBA and How well can you connect your past experience - > PGPX -- > Post MBA goals together. Give your best. Good luck !

With 11 years of experience and exposure to family business and various management programs, you should target all 1 yr programs (IIMs (A, B, C, L &I), ISB, XLRI and even SP Jain). However, a few of these colleges should be your focus areas.

Aditionally you have to think a lot about how you will stich a story from these various career choices that you have made. A strong story and extreme clarity of though on Why MBA will be essential for you to get an interview call. A strong GMAT score (in line with class average) will also be necessary to overshadow your past academic scores.
