My GMAT score is 670 (V32/Q49). Greatly disappointed as I was scoring consistently 700+ in the practice tests. I currently have 3+ work-exp in IT and am planning to join 2011 batch (by that time my WE will be around 5 yr). Just wanted to know whether this score is good enough to apply to good B-school or should I retake it? What are safe B-schools for this score?
Thanks in advance!
It depends on the overall profile to get into a good B-school. 670 is a average score and never mind is in the just average bracket, keeping in view the overall performance of he test takers. I believe it should be somewhere over 80 percentile. So again it not to be harassed. There is a high possibility of you getting into a good b-school if you have over 5 years of work-ex. Since you will be in the 90th percentile in the work-ex ranking.
Still I would recommend you to take the test once again, if possible, because there is no harm if also you get a even lower score since most b-schools look into the highest score rather than the latest score.
Write it again because you have ample time and you were scoring consiostently more in practise tests. 700+ is going to really help you for the elite schools. (top 20). If you are aiming for schools outside the top 20, 670 is an adequate score.
All the best x
Your opinions will really matter a lot. Thanks so much in advance
