Disappointed 670

Post Fri Jun 01, 2007 11:19 am
Stacey/Eric/others:
I just did my GMAT and got 670 (49 Q, 32 V). I am utterly disappointed. I am not sure what to do now.

I am not sure whether I could find time to study for GMAT again and improve score. So, I am thinking of applying for univs with this score only. Can I?

My undergrad GPA - 4.0, I have a masters in Electrical Engg with 4.0 GPA. I will have 4.5 years of experience by Fall 2008. I can have two very good recommendation letters. Are there any top universities which concentrate less on GMAT?

Is this a decent score to appy to top universities such as MIT, Kellogg etc.?

Please tell me what to do next.

A 670 is still a great score--and given your GPA, I think you would still be competitive with the schools you listed. I would pose your profile info to Stacy Blackman and ask her opinion, since she's the expert.

To give you some hope--my sister got a similar GMAT score as you did and went to kellogg.

Best of luck!
