Hey Akhshat,

You overall carry a good profile but you should definetly about retaking the GMAT. As you have pursued CA, I am sure that you can score much better than 600, the ambitious b-schools you have considered are among top 10, with your GMAT its very difficult or equal to impossible.

Hi Akshat,

Barring few exceptions, one shouldn’t focus on a school depending on what you want to do in the medium term. It should be mainly driven by your short-term goal. Moreover, unlike few years back, now most reputed programs have better entrepreneurial offering. Gone are the days when Babson was preferred just for its entrepreneurial offering.
