IF you think you can improve your GMAT, in time to submit the application, then I think it would be a smart thing to do. cheers, alex

Thanks Alex!

Agree that my GMAT score is at the lower side. I have won awards at work for my contribution and also expect a strong recommendation letter.
I called up Georgetown and they have confirmed that they will accept my 3 year undergrad since WES considers it equivalent to a US 4 year degree.

Do you think the work exp, the recommendation and the undergrad scores together can outweigh my low GMAT scores?
OR, does retaking the GMAT seem like a more logical option?
