what are my chances of admission in ISB: my score 690

Post Sun Nov 23, 2008 2:28 am
I took my GMAT today and scored 690 (quant-50, verbal-33)
I made the deadliest mistake of overinvesting in 2 questions of verbal as a result of which I was left with 15 minutes and 16 questions. It was all messed up in the end.
I am 43 years old with an experience of 21 years in Public sector Bank.
I have had diverse responsibilty such as Branch head assignments, responsible for setting up of RTGS in my bank, excellent inter personnel skills, good exposure of sanction and follow up, record exposure of retails and dealing with customers and very strong on IT - website development and software development. I have ben invited in the past by principals to lecture on computers to enthuse children and by local clubs on hobby classes. At present, I am working in the Research department of a leading Public sector bank and besides the fact that most of my research recommendations are implemented in policy making of the bank, I am into various team building activities, such as looking after event management of entire office, right from scheduling calendar to liasioning with top management and coordinating various cultural and academic events.
I was out of the Bank for two years (that was 11 years back when I wanted to carve a career of my own liking and I was into singing, acting, scriptwriting, children audio album etc.) It all came to a full stop when I came back to the bank 9 years ago, because of lack of funds to sustain along with my family, and because my Management was keen on having me back.
I am strong in Music, computers, Photography and painting and I have done active theatre for 7 years.

What are my chances of getting admission in ISB.

If I do not get admission to ISB this year, I will try again next year.
Will it benefit me then to go for another try at GMAT.
Please guide.
