700 (Q48 V38)

by vikram_k51 » Wed Sep 02, 2009 10:38 am
Hi All,
Today I appeared for GMAT at last.I had to reschedule my test 5 times.I had booked a date for 14th September but fate had it otherwise.I am supposed to fly next week,hence had to appear today at one day's notice.
I have 5 years of solid work-ex behind me.With the largest IT company and with America's largest bank.
Now I am confused about what should I do.Can you please suggest what are the realistic schools I must target at?

Thanks BTG,my major part of preparation was answering and posting questions in this forum.

GMAT: 700 (90 Percentile)
QA 48 (83 percentile)
VA 38 (83 percentile)

You should jump up and down and be thrilled with your score. Nice job, even under difficult circumstances you pulled a score that we all want. Anything above 700 is gravy and with your work experience you can apply to any school with confidence.

Congratulations!

Thanks.
I am targetting ISB,Great Lakes and XLRI-GMP.
Have 5 years of work-ex with India's largest MNC and currently with an American Bank in India.
Have done my BTech from NIT-Silchar and was among the top 1% of the class all throughout my Academic Career.
Have done some philanthropic activities,volunteered for some NGOs.
Shall I apply to ISB or I will be wasting 3000 bucks?
:twisted: :shock: :?:

Typically ISB looks for a higher GMAT score. Having said that, your score is pretty competitive.
Just concentrate on a stellar app package with a focus on differentiating yourself from the 100's of typical Male IT applicants

Cheers!
