Can you give us a brief summary (or link us to an earlier post) of how you prepared the first time around?

HI sandipgumtya,

I'd like to know a bit more about your GMAT studies so far and your application history/plans:

1) How long did you study?
2) What materials did you use?
3) What were the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores on the Official GMAT?

4) What Schools did you apply to?
5) Did you receive any confirmation that your GMAT Score was the 'issue' with your applications?
6) When are you planning to reapply?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

Hi sandipgumtya,

Before you retake the GMAT, I highly recommend that you talk through your situation with an Admissions Expert. There's a Forum full of them here:

http://www.beatthegmat.com/ask-an-mba-admissions-consultant-f40.html

If by "PI", you mean 'personal interview', then it's worth noting that Business Schools generally only grant interviews to applicants who they're interested in. If you had three interviews but nothing came from any of them, then there's a pretty good chance that something about the interview (something you said - or didn't say - or how you said it) is what kept you from getting an invite (and not your GMAT score).

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
