640 and got into LBS!!! yea!!!

Post Wed Nov 29, 2017 12:25 am
Hi all,
I want to share with you my fantastic result. I got into LBS! so excited!
A bit about my profile:
4 years of experience, 2 as a team leader (of 2 engineers).
Average GPA, and only 640 in the GMAT...
I took the GMAT again and again, but could not score a good verbal score.

I thought I would have to compromise on the schools I went for. then I met aringo who specialize in low gmats... I thought they were pulling my leg when they said I could get into top European schools. we used some of my childhood stories (I used to play a lot of football) for some of the essays, and came up with a good career plan and 3 months later, I got into both IESE and LBS! wow. could not be happier
I really recommend to all those with low GMATs not to give up. people like aringo can help you get into the top schools... it is all about how you tell your story...

LBS - here I come!

I had a similar story... but with 660...
I really didn't have much faith, and when aringo said I would make it, I decided to go with them...
4 school applications, 3 interviews (Duke, Ross, Mccombs), 2 acceptances (and one wait list)
not bad Smile

conclusion - GMAT is just part of the story...
see you next year at Duke!
